Pinnacle Dialogue:  Who are the "Dones" and Why Should the Church Care About Them? (one hour)

An Interview with Patrick Vaughn, Author of Meeting Jesus At Starbucks (forthcoming)

September 11--10 am CT/11 am ET

Cost:  $20


Who are the "dones"? They are the 65 million people who have left the church. Another 7 million people are "almost dones."  While they are stilll sitting in pews on Sunday morning, they already have one foot out the door.  Why have the "dones" left the church?  (Hint:  Age is not the issue!)  Are they simply angry malcontents?  What might we learn from them?  Can leaving actually be a spiritual practice?


Join us for this conversation as Patrick helps us 1) understand their struggle; 2) consider how we might unwittingly turn people off Christian community; and 3) discover how the "dones" can enrich our faith.
