…67 percent chose the word “classic” to describe their ideal church. Only 33 percent preferred a trendy church as their ideal.
Churches fitted with ornate stained glass windows may not become a thing of the archaic past just yet, noted one church construction company.
Although presently the stained glass industry has been experiencing a decline in business, research among younger Americans indicates that stained glass could experience a comeback.
Derek DeGroot, architect with the Aspen Group, a company that specializes in building churches, explained to The Christian Post on Monday the current trend.
“Although certain denominations still use stained glass traditionally, many mainline protestant denominations that we designed & built for have seen an apparent decline in the use of stained glass in the recent past,” said DeGroot.
“However, there are new discussions that stained glass is seen more favorably by younger generations.”
