The Nurtured Church

Feb 25, 2020

Church attendance in American has been declining for a long time. First, it was the cultural Christians who stopped attending. More recently, committed church members are showing up less frequently. Are there encouraging trends among all this negative data?

Thom Rainer, former CEO of Lifeway and founder of Church Answers, says, Yes! Thom joined us on this episode to discuss declining attendance patterns, new trends in worship participation, digitalization, and the increasing challenges of pastoral ministry.

What we talked about:

  • The two reasons the physically gathered church is growing again
  • What's happening in churches that aren't on board with digital giving
  • The one thing that bothers pastors the most and why they should hang in there anyway
