Lutheran Hour Ministries (LHM) has partnered with Barna Group—an industry leader for research-based insights about faith and culture, leadership and vocation, and generational groups—on a critical three-year study of faith in America. This bold new collaboration will allow LHM to create resources and online courses that address the needs of both the churched and non-churched.


Households of Faith
An Invitation into the Homes of Practicing Christians

Barna studies have revealed much about the state of religion in the United States and how faith is perceived and discussed in public. But what about how faith is being nurtured in private—with the spouses, children, parents, roommates and even frequent visitors who spend time under our roofs?

How Christians order their days and connect with relatives and housemates is a critical aspect of spiritual growth. Households of Faith, the second in a series of studies produced in partnership between Lutheran Hour Ministries and Barna, presents a vivid portrait of the domestic lives of U.S. practicing Christians, including:

  • An overview of modern living arrangements and the relationships that define them
  • Details of housemates’ regular interactions—practical, recreational and spiritual
  • Insights about relationships that have a positive and enduring infl uence on housemates
  • Analysis of how faith heritage is linked to beliefs and rituals in adulthood
  • Interviews with experts in elder, family and youth ministry about reaching a variety of households
  • Custom profiles of vibrant households that embrace hospitality and spiritual practices

In addition to all-new research and data visualizations, Households of Faith provides vital principles to strengthen followers of Christ, their homes and, ultimately, the family of God.
