Retaining the offspring

Some interesting statistics indicating how well various religious [and non-religious] groups seem to be at retaining those raised within them:


I wonder whether Seventh Day Baptists track with Baptists generally?

Did you know that Atheists have the lowest retention rate of any “religious” group? Some interesting Data from CARA | Archdiocese of Washington

    I believe that this has been one of &th Day abptists greatest weakness. we have blamed it on many things like "Going away to College", "lack of industry - jobs", "moving to the city", "being in love with a generic Christianity as oppose to a committment to a local sdb congregation".


    I think Andrew Camenga, Executive of the 7th Day Baptist Board of Christian education has a better explanation. We have not taught and helped people catch "A portable faith".
