The Latest Trends in Church Health & Growth

The Unstuck Church Report consists of 20 metrics that highlight trends with an impact on church health. We focus on 4 key areas to give you benchmarks and an objective look at where the Church may be headed:

  • Ministry Reach
  • Ministry Connection
  • Ministry Staffing & Leadership
  • Ministry Finances

This quarter, we are also including a bonus section highlighting what the data is telling us about the differences between churches that are growing and declining on this side of the pandemic.

For this quarter’s report, we limited the analysis to churches that completed the assessment between mid-March 2021 and early-February 2022. In other words, this is the first quarterly report that does not include any pre-pandemic data.

  • Looking for cutting edge, fresh … AND FACTUAL, “plug in” information. To many groups, hash out the same old, same old. Creativity is what is needed in Jesus’ Church.
