Ordination of Women and how it impacts young adults that don’t attend church « Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should…or does it?

16 Mar

Interesting statistics on whether people would consider joining a church that endorsed or didn’t endorse women’s ordination.

« Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should…or does it?.

In his book Lost and Found: The Younger Unchurched and the Churches that Reach them, twentysomethings were asked, “If you were considering visiting or joining a church, would knowing that the church did not endorse the ordination of women as pastors negatively or positively impact your decision?” 65% said this would negatively impact their decision, 6% said this would be a positive and almost 30% said this stance against women’s ordination would not make a difference or that they were not sure.
