Here at The Unstuck Group, we serve hundreds of churches annually. As part of the Ministry Health Assessment phase of our process, we’ve developed some key metrics to help church leaders get an objective snapshot of the health of their church. Because of that, we’ve had our eye on these metrics for years, and we’ve often shared them with the churches we serve.
We recently decided to give our wider network of church leaders a consistent look at the trends we’re identifying through this data.
Each quarter, we plan to release a new edition of The Unstuck Church Report: Benchmarks & Trends in U.S. Churches. It’s a 4-page PDF overviewing 20 updated metrics in key areas of church health, including Ministry Reach, Staffing and Leadership, Connection, and Finances. Tony Morgan shares his take on several of the more intriguing data points.
Here are just a few of the questions you can expect the report to answer:
- Has average attendance increased or decreased overall?
- What percentage of churches have gone multisite?
- How many people are churches baptizing?
- What percentage of the budget are churches spending on staffing?
- What’s the average span of care for leaders?

We know few leaders are tracking a comprehensive set of metrics to inform their view of their church’s health. We hope this report will equip you with a better understanding of the ones we think are important, and ultimately, help you lead an unstuck church.
