From reality television to social media, 29-year-old gospel singer Kierra Sheard notices that people in her demographic are attracted to authenticity.

In an interview with The Christian Post, the singer and designer of the Eleven60 clothing line said she believes when people speak to genuine believers, they are less likely to feel judged.

"What goes viral is when someone is actually being themselves and they're being honest with their audience. I think that's what will encourage millennials to come back [to church] because we eliminate the element of judging others," she told The Christian Post. "I think that we're so quick to judge people. I think that our approach is heavy and it allows us to push people away."

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine last month, rapper Lecrae Moore, 37, was asked about millennials leaving the church. According to the rapper who founded Reach Records, the young adult generation is less interested in church because of a lack of authenticity presented by many in the Christian faith.

"I think a lot of times we've seen faith equated with patriotism, nationalism or southern conservatism and those are more akin to American culture than they are to authentic faith," Lecrae told Rolling Stone. "I think when you start adopting those, you're throwing away what really matters and adopting this kind of cultural thing that really has nothing to do with the faith component."
