Who We Are
God's word is the most powerful force on earth. It encourages, strengthens, corrects, and offers the way of salvation for God's crowning creation - Mankind. But, it all begins by renewing our minds.
At Focus Press, we desire all people everywhere to come to a full understanding, of true Christianity. Unfortunately, there is much confusion when it comes to the world of religion. Focus Press was formed to publish materials based on the inspired Word of God. Resources that are designed to provide understanding and clarity when it comes to issues that are, quite frankly, sometimes very difficult to comprehend.
That's why we began publishing Think magazine in January of 2006. Why such an unusual title for a Christian magazine? Our ultimate goal is to provide reasonable answers for those who are seeking the truth. Think deals with difficult topics such as, stem cell research, intelligent design, cloning, abortion, homosexuality and other social issues that affect us as we live in an increasingly perplexed society. There are regular departments that will deal with practical ways to pass our faith to the next generation, how to incorporate our faith into daily living, issues that are unique to women, how to be good stewards of our blessings, and a host of other regular columns designed to strengthen those who are already committed to living for Christ.
The Mayday Project
Mayday is a distress signal given in life-threatening scenarios. At Focus Press we have initiated the Mayday Project to sound the alarm on those who have left the church. Almost every Christian knows of someone who has walked away from the church—the time has come to sound the alarm and to take a hard look at why they are leaving.
We at Focus Press spend a lot of time writing and talking about the lost generations in the Lord’s church. The stats suggest that a majority of those brought up in the church are now leaving by the time they finish college. In fact, it appears we are missing most of the generation who are now in their 20’s. Imagine for just a moment where the church would be today if we had retained 95% of our children.
If our priorities are in order, Christians should know that there is nothing more important than a soul, and yet, our effectiveness in focusing on the retention of souls is clearly lacking. While many congregations are focusing hard on getting new visitors in the front door, they have left the back door wide open. So, going forward, one of our goals should be to understand why people are leaving the church, re-evaluate how we are teaching our young people, and hopefully prevent ourselves from making any of the same mistakes with future generations.
The best way to understand why some have left the church seems obvious – just ask them. This is where we’re requesting your help. Many of us know someone who has decided that being active members of the church is no longer for them. What we ask is that you would pass this survey along to those friends or family that have left the church (whether on social media, by email, or by some other means of communication that would be visible to those who have left the church). If you are someone who is no longer a part of the church, we would like to ask a few basic questions of you in order to better understand your opinion on the matter. As always, the survey is anonymous unless you should choose to identify yourself and should only take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.
We thank you in advance for helping us pass this survey along.
