New Barna Report Reveals That America’s Most Generous Christians Live in Idaho, Iowa, and Nevada

The most generous churchgoers in the United States live in the middle of Idaho, while the second-most generous church members reside in two small towns in eastern Iowa, according to a new Barna report.

Barna this month released data showing where the most generous practicing Christians live in the U.S. – both in annual church giving and annual non-profit giving.

The Pocatello/Idaho Falls/Jackson, Idaho, region ranked first in both categories, with an annual $15,601 given by practicing Christians to churches and an annual $17,977 in Christian non-profit giving. (The latter number includes church giving.)

Ottumwa/Kirksville, Iowa, ranked second ($9,600) in church giving, while Las Vegas ($10,410) was second in nonprofit giving.
