Kinnaman to keynote Alignment Conference with first look at new Barna research

David Kinnaman, president of the Barna Group, will offer a first look at results from a new study on church architecture and Millennials at this year’s Alignment Conference on October 22, 2013. “This is brand new, groundbreaking research looking at how the spiritual journeys of Millennials match against their expectations of churches,” Kinnaman says. “We’re going to be looking at Millennials and architecture—they’re reactions to worship space, and their experiences in local churches. “

For the first time in American church history, nearly an entire generation has grown tired of organized religion. This group of 18- to 34-year olds no longer feels safe inside church walls or comforted by its people. And so they’ve begun to walk away…from the church and/or from the faith.

Tying into themes in his book You Lost Me, Kinnaman will help church leaders better understand the Millennial Generation and what the new research findings mean for the future of church facilities. Register for the Alignment Conference today to learn how church facilities can help shape the spiritual journeys of Millennials at your church.

In addition to Kinnaman’s keynote address, the Alignment Conference one-day event will feature other leading voices on issues relating to Millennials and the church, including communication, generosity, and designing ministry space that makes room for Millennials.
