Cities in New England are among the most Post-Christian in the United States
The Barna Group identifies post-christian cities according to “15 metrics related to faith, which speak to the lack of Christian identity, belief and practice.” Check out their original post here.
One study shows New England to have one church for every 4,000 to 8,000 people.
Fewer than 4% of New Englanders go to an evangelical church.
That is, the number of New Englanders even attending church is similar to the number of green dots scattered among the orange.
You may now have a greater chance of hearing the Gospel of Jesus in India than in the United States
Though the number of people that identify as Christians in India is slightly lower than in New England, conversions are on the rise.
We want to see this change!
Though we have not yet begun to plant in New England, our experience thus far with NETS has impassioned us for this burnt-over area. We long to see revival again that Jesus Christ would be lifted up before these people and seen as beautiful! Will you partner with us in prayer and consider supporting us in our church planting pursuit?
