Be the first donor to support ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN NETWORK !
As an Orthodox Christian Network supporter, you know that we are on the forefront of technology and media in the Orthodox faith. Our new initiative "Faith at your fingertips" focuses on reaching this lost generation.
According to the Barna Research Group, "only 2 in 10 Americans under 30 believe attending a church is important or worthwhile (an all-time low)" and "59% percent of millennials raised in a church have dropped out." Millennials ages 22-35 years old who grew up in the church are now going to college and are attending church less regularly or are never returning at all. OCN believes the best way to reach out to this generation is through the platforms they currently use everyday - technology. The Pew Research Center has calculated that over 77% of young adults spend more than 2 hours a day on their smartphones before or after work. This is why OCN finds it important to meet this generation where they are.
