Interesting Baptism Facts from 2000 - 2008 - Are we getting away from Evangelism?

Here are some other interesting Baptism Facts

22% of all baptism's each year are students from the age of 12-17
18% are Kids from the age of 9-11
25% are Adults from 30-59

This shows that the teenage year's are crucial years from an individual to give their life to Christ and follow through in Baptism. Time to invest in Student Ministry!!!!

Student Ministry Trend
In 2000 we saw 93,100 Baptism (12-17 years old)
This past year we saw 75,215 (12-17 years old)

Again each year it is dropping.

We see the same trend happening w/ 30-59 year's old:
2000 - 105,024 were baptized
2008 84,667 were baptized.

Same Story with ages 9-11
2000 - 74,994
2008 - 61,233

Total all ages:
2000 - 414,657
2008 - 342,198
