Survey Invitation

Young Adults and the Church — Millennials are one of the largest age-group demographics of the U.S. population, but they are one of the smallest groups in The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.

LCMS Youth Ministry wants to hear insights from young adults, congregations, pastors, and church workers to research why.

Eight hundred congregations were randomly selected to participate in a short survey, which asks about the young people confirmed in your congregation approximately 10-13 years ago. Rest assured, this survey is anonymous.

Please encourage your pastors to take this survey, and others interested in this topic are also invited.
