Moving Pastors Toward Science

Dear reader,

A new poll shows that for young adults in particular, belief in God is plummeting. From research, we know a primary driver behind a loss of faith among young people is the church’s rejection of science. To put it bluntly: Young people aren’t leaving the faith because of science, they’re leaving because they’ve been told to choose between science and God. That’s why BioLogos exists—to show that science and faith can work hand-in-hand. And although the challenge is clearly daunting, our work is having an impact!

As a nonprofit, we rely on the generosity of grassroots donors like you to reach those who are being told, “It’s God or evolution!” or “It’s God or vaccines!” or “It’s God or science!” In this urgent moment, we need your help to continue to produce resources such as this.

This project, led by Craig Story and Justin Topp, is entitled “Pastors, Faith and Science” and has the goal of equipping pastors with tools to approach issues of science and faith with greater confidence. Story and Topp’s project was one of many supported by the BioLogos grant program, Evolution & Christian Faith.
