Why Do Church Members Leave in 2020?

On the other hand, what makes them leave? Believe it or not, it’s not politics or music. The majority of devoted church members (48%) only leave if they have to move to a new home. However, 19% leave when the preaching style changes, so it’s important to take changes slowly to avoid pushing your members away. Other reasons church members leave, according to LifeWay, include:

  • Pastor leaves (12%)
  • Politics (9%)
  • Music changes (5%)
  • Conflicts (4%)
