Report Suggests Younger People Not Going To Church

SHENANDOAH VALLEY, Va. - According to the BARNA research group, six in 10 young people surveyed say they will leave church for an extended period of time before age 15.

We spoke to someone who thinks some churches should evolve to get more younger people to attend.

"It's got to constantly change, constantly evolve, constantly explore and see what's not necessarily working but what's the most relevant, seeing what kids are finding interesting, what people are interested in, what they're wanting to hear and there can't just be one church doing it," says Cody Almarode who attends the Church Downtown in Staunton.

The report notes that many church leaders hope those views by the younger members change as they get older.
