This issue describes the profile of the types of churches in North America and elsewhere: #1 the denial church; #2 the program mania church; #3 the flash church; #4 the activity church; #5 the healthy church.
The painful reality is that many churches are plateaued or declining, and the median age is getting older. The case study is from a church that started with 34 people. Eighteen years later, it was worshipping 1,500 on Easter Sunday. The report comes from the pastor.
