Who are you inviting to church this week?

Barna came out with a new study on the unchurched in America.

They say that 33% (almost 100 million) of adults in the United States are unchurched, meaning they have not attended a religious service of any type during the past six months

And using that definition, they came up with the following statistics of unchurched demographics:
• 63% of Asians are unchurched
• 49% of homosexuals
• 47% of political liberals
• 37% of single adults
• 34% of Hispanics
• 31% of heterosexuals
• 29% of married adults
• 25% of African Americans
• 19% of political conservatives

The Church is always engaged in the conversation of “who is our target audience?” or "who are we trying to reach?" and I think this gives a good picture of who we should be trying to reach.

America is a huge missionfield. Your neighborhood is a huge missionfield! Who are you inviting to church this week?
