Benchmarks + Trends in U.S. Churches

Thanks for checking out The Unstuck Church Report. 

There are a few strategic ways to measure church health and we want to equip you with what we’ve learned—

From our unique point of view serving hundreds of U.S. churches each year, we notice benchmarks & trends in church health. Each quarter, we share a snapshot of the numbers we track on a macro level that we hope you will begin tracking in the life of your church.

These metrics include:

Metrics on Engagement, First Time Guests + Multiplication Strategies

What strategies are churches using to reach their community? Are those strategies having an impact?

Metrics on Staffing Budget + Boards

What are the current trends in church staffing? Are these trends healthy?

Metrics on Groups, Membership + Volunteer Engagement

How are churches getting people connected? Is it working?

Metrics on Giving, Cash Reserves and Debt

Are churches in a healthy financial position? How much are people giving?

Metrics on the Church Life Cycle 

What are the current trends in church health? Are churches growing or declining?
