Statewide Teenager Research
2007
Presented by:
November 6, 2007
Background & Methodology
The Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma seeks to gain a better understanding of the
opinions and perceptions of unchurched Oklahoma teenagers regarding church, the Bible, God,
Jesus Christ, and other topics. In order to do this, a comprehensive statewide survey was
conducted among 483 randomly selected households. Teenagers were recruited from within
these households who fit the psychographically unchurched screener, as developed by the
BGCO and Equip Research. This yields a sample error of +/- 4.7% at the 95% confidence level.
In addition to the study of unchurched teenagers, a survey was taken among churched
teenagers as well to provide a baseline for comparison.
In order to accomplish the Churched Teenager portion of the survey, the BGCO and Equip
Research created a “churched teenager” survey that was the same as the “unchurched
teenager” survey, exceptions being those questions that applied only to that particular
audience (ie church attendance, etc.). This survey was then distributed to a random selection
of churches across the state of Oklahoma. The individual churches then administered the
survey to their students and sent the completed surveys to Equip Research and Consulting.
A total of 1,013 surveys were completed and an overall database of 843 responses (due to
weighting and representation) was created. This yields a sample error of +/- 3.4% at the 95%
confidence level.

BOTH: Life Influences
The following table shows the average “level of influence” of the available options for both
unchurched and churched respondents. Parents held the highest level influence regardless of
churched status. However, churched respondents indicated lower levels of influence on nearly
all factors. The verbatim responses show that these students are more influenced by non-listed
people, such as youth group leader or minister.

Probably a little bit of work and a
little bit of laziness
Probably because I am always doing
something or I just do go because I
just don't go
Probably because I have to work on
Saturdays and sometimes I work
really late so I get really tired and I
don't want to fall asleep in church.
Probably because I wouldn't get a
ride to church. Plus my family like
my parents aren't really involved in
church
Probably because my parents don't
have enough money to pay for the
gas to go back and forth from
church.
Probably because the church I
usually go to I live too far away to go
a lot.
Probably just sleeping in or
something
Probably, because sometimes it can
get kind of boring, it depends on
what you do. And sometimes I’m
too tired in the morning to go.

spreading the Word.

accurate documents in the world.
I thought it was ok

I thought it was pretty cool that
someone was watching over me and
everyone else all over the world.
I thought it was pretty interesting.
I thought it was really cool. It’s cool
that there’s someone up there
watching over us. And that we can
ask him for help and sometimes he'll
answer your prayers and sometimes
he won't.
I thought it was interesting and I
thought I should learn more
I told them I was Jewish so we just
talked about each other’s religions
I tried to get more involved in it

I was young so it really didn't matter
to me I didn't think it was a big deal
I was young, so I didn't think much
about it
I'd tell them that I needed to know
Jesus and that I am a strong
Christian.
I’ll think about it
I’m busy, don't bug me
I'm not old enough to remember. I
was raised this way
I’m not really interested in church

It was a good reaction.
it was a long time ago, don't know

your life. It was really nice.

The good has to come from
somewhere and I believe it comes
from Jesus and God.

understand what he did for us. A bit
of a shock

"How could someone love me who doesn't know me?"
"I don't want to believe in a God." - friends
"Jesus is fake."
"Oh that's nice."
"Oh, you're into that?"
"OMG, why are they saying that"
"Whatever. I just don't believe."
"Yah, he's cool" and "Yah, ok, um hm".
A lot are very understanding.
A lot of people try not to think it, but they usually listen to you.
A lot of them are receptive but not always
A lot of time they disagree but other times they're quiet and listen but give their
opinions at times.
Act like they're not listening.
All different replies.
All of them
Alright
As if they have head it before, change the subject.
Asking quesions and "I need to but not this week/day" when I ask them why they say,
"I'm too busy" or "my boy/girlfriend is in town."
At first they act like they could care less, but in the end they normally come around.
At first, they dont want to and are hesitant, but occasionally they will listen.
At the beginning they tend to not really care, but if you keep trying you'll get to them
Awesome, good.
Badly.
Blank stare
Blow it off
By going to church
By going to church and evenings
Change subject
Coming to church.
Comprehensive, listening but not caring
Confused (Repeated 5 times)
Confused at my opinion and not willing.

He said he wanted to be a Christian, but he didn't want to be made fun of at school.
He said that's cool and walked off.
He was like, "I don't care".
They don’t always or they say, "Oh, I already go to church".
I absolutely love talking about Jesus!
I don't care is what they say.
I don't know.
I get excited
I go to church.
I hate you
I just talked them though their decisions.
I know about it, I just don't go to church.
I know I should believe in Him
I listen and want to learn more.
I listen intently.
I listen really good
I listen to what people have to say.
I love hear about Jesus, and even though I already know what they're telling me I still
love that other people are sharing the gospel and it's always fun to talk to them.
I love to hear about Jesus because I love Him.
I see if I believe the same thing.
I sit there and listen.
I think most people see the hypocritical side of Christianity, so most are nice and listen,
but don't really care, especially when they've seen that person out partying the night
before.
I think that some people get scared and don't want to face the truth.
I would listen
If they are searching, like at Falls Creek, they were very receptive. Friends haven't been
as receptive.
If they really want to know, they listen. If they aren't that interested, they pretend to
listen.
If they respect me, they listen
If they want to hear, they act interested. If they don't, they turn you away sometimes.
If they want to know they are really interested and if they aren't the stare at you but
don't really pay attention.
If you explain it right, they don't really hesitate to listen.
If you let them know that you care, they will listen more.
Ignorant
Ignore it.
I'm going to start going to church.
I'm not ready for that.

I'm not sure.
I'm not sure. Uncomfortable maybe.
In a good way
In church and by people
In today's world, hardly anyone cares. Some people are interested, but a lot just don't
care.
In weird ways.
Indifferent
Interested, I liked it.
Interested
It depends on how bad off they are, or how open they are to the idea.
It depends on if you approach them the right way, if you aren't pushy they're usually
pretty open, if you push too much, they get offended
It depends on the person and their experiences.
It depends on the person, but they're usually open to what you have to say.
It depends on the person. (Repeated 2 times)
It depends on what kind of people you're around.
It depends on who you talk to and what they believe.
It depends, some people don't care and some want to know more.
It depends, sometimes interested, sometimes they act like they don't care.
It is always different.
It just depends on how much they are ready to handle. Some have been more
experienced in "church" than others. You take it at different levels.
It just depends on if they're open about hearing more. Now if it's your science teacher,
that's a different story.
It really just depends on what they believe and were taught.
It was a positive reaction
It was awkward.
I've gotten both positive and negative reactions.
I've never really done it before.
I've tried to tell several people but they did not want to believe in God, they try to argue
that "evolution is right".
Jesus is hated, avoided, and craved. Every person is so diffeent, so how could you
possibly ask me to lob everyone into one meaningless stereotypical body of people?
Jesus is my Savior and Lord. That is the only way to Heaven.
Kind of awkward
Kind of like they think I'm crazy.
Kind of like they're not interested.
Kind of weird at first.
Kind of ignore you.
Like it goes right through their head.

Like it's no big deal, like He's just like a thing you could get info if you feel like, but they
mostly don't feel like it.

Most will probably listen, but after you tell, they go back to living the way they do.
Most wish they got more into church.
Mostly, reluctant to what you’re saying, but if also opens up a deeper relationship with
that person and next time the topic comes us it's easier to talk about.
My friend asked my Mom if she can come to church but her parents won't always let
her.
My friend got offended because I was making her think her religion isn't true.
My friends were glad to hear about it.
My neighbors were like I'll have to go to church and start going.
Negative
Negatively
Negatively. I used to be one of those people. There's such a negative stigma associated
with the word Jesus. It's tough to get past the wall of preconceived negative ideas
people have about Christ.
No
No man, I'm saved, I don't need to go to church.
Normally
Not Good.
Not interested unless the Spirit is working.
Not many it seems like
Not real well.
Not really.
Not so good they don't want to hear it.
Not so good.
Not so well. They kind of listen.
Not too well.
Not very good.
Not very well but if you spend time with them then it gets better.
Not well
Not well or ask lots of questions.
Not willing to listen to what I am saying.
offended (sometimes), awkward, shy, rude
Oh gah, here we go again
Oh or whatever
Oh, please.
ok.
Okay and they ask questions.
One of my friends accepted Christ, they react okay.
One was interested, one was not.
