New Documentary, “When God Left the Building,” Reveals the Decline of the American Church


A new documentary film that spotlights the decline of the American church focuses on the spiritual climate in the United States.

The film, titled When God Left the Building, will be screened August 4 at the Acme Theater in Hollywood, California. The film’s director, Thom Schultz, will be on hand to lead a live talk-back session following the screening.

“The American church as we know it is dying,” Schultz said. “What was once the heart and soul of the community is going away.”

“The majority of churches across the country are either stuck or in a state of decline,” Schultz said. “Weekly church attendance has dropped to 20 percent of the population, and this trend has resulted in the closing of 4,000 churches per year.”

Filmmakers spent three years documenting a church that saw its attendance plunge by 90 percent.

“It was a heart-wrenching mash-up of societal upheaval, spiritual confusion and human conflict,” Schultz said.
