Decades of change study reveals declining health of attendance, giving, and involvement in America’s churches. What will you do?
“Indeed, the prominence of mega-church images notwithstanding, more than 1 in 4 American congregations had fewer than 50 in worship in 2010, and just under half had fewer than 100. Overall, median weekend worship attendance of your typical congregation dropped from 130 to 108 during the decade according to the FACT surveys. While it is true that the number of mega-churchs roughly doubled during the decade, they still only constitute about a half of one percent of all congregations in the U.S. And while it appears to be true they are attracting an ever bigger slice of the religious attender pie, it is a bigger slice of a shrinking pie.”
