We typically perform surveys following each issue of Pastor Resources which reaches pastors at churches nationwide of varying sizes and denominations. With almost 1,000 participants we can achieve a true sampling of our audience.
It seemed quite appropriate to find out how pastors and their churches are operating after the last year and a half of insanity. Here is a screenshot of the what we discovered:
We realize you can do math… we purposely excluded the percentages of churches who are worse off. Why? It’s time to focus on the positive of what the Lord accomplished despite all the difficulties His church faced. For instance:
- Pastors are trusting God and fighting harder than ever before!
- Commitments to Christ are up!
- If you combine attendance and giving increases now compared to prior to lockdowns, they’re up 46%! Better than before? Only God!
If you believe the Lord can use you to not only equip these churches who are growing, but also encourage those pastors at ministries who are suffering, let’s partner together today.
We’re going to be reaching 100,000 pastors once again in October – and how timely – it’s Pastor Appreciation Month.
