About a quarter of religious adults in the U.S. tell others about their faith at least once a week, which is up since 2007, according to a new study by Pew Research Center. And while older Americans are more engaged in practices such as church membership and private devotions, Pew found younger adults are “slightly more likely” to share their faith. Here’s how it breaks down:
Percentage of adults who share their faith at least monthly:
43% of all Christian millennials
A separate study found that young adults were more likely than older groups to share their faith online.
56% of Evangelical millennials
Barna Group studies show that millennial Christians may be more committed to faith.
32% of Christians of all ages
Those in non-Christian faiths were much less likely to share their faith with nonbelievers.
36% of Evangelicals of all ages
Those from historically black churches were the most likely to share frequently.
