Megachurches, which have attendances over 2,000, have been changing in shifting in recent years with the rise of multisite churches, which make up roughly 75% of the 100 largest churches in America. While Lakewood Church in Houston, TX remains the largest congregation in America, Life.Church in Edmond, OK, reportedly has over 70,000 attendees in multiple locations. In addition,  60% of the largest churches are growing, 20% are plateaued and 11% have decreased in the past five years.

  • Perks of Small Churches: Don’t feel bad if your church is small. Sociologists note that small churches can actually be more active in reaching out to their communities.
  • Multi-Site Growth: The multi-site trend is here to stay, and churches will need to adapt their leadership development accordingly.
  • Growth Today Isn’t Growth Tomorrow: Only 60% of megachurches are growing, so pastors can’t afford to assume that what worked yesterday will work tomorrow.

After John Lennon joked that the Beatles were more popular than Jesus, Baptist pastor Rev. Thurman H. Babbs of New Heaven Baptist Church in Cleveland threatened to revoke the membership of anyone who supports the Beatles. One person posted a sign along a Pennsylvania road that read: “God Forever, Beatles Never.” Lennon apologized for the remark, but ticket sales surged in the wake of the controversy.

Why this story matters for church leaders: It’s hard to imagine the Beatles being controversial enough to kick someone out of a church, but there will always be a new controversy to fight about. Perhaps this story reminds us about investing too much energy in the controversy of the day.
  • Times Are a Changing: The Beatles hardly appear to be a threat to most Christians today. Does this story help us consider ways to better use our time and energy in ministry and mission?
  • Amplified Controversy: The outcry over Lennon’s comment would be amplified with social media today. How do we keep that in mind when responding to a controversy?
  • When to Take a Stand? While many may disagree with the pastor’s decision in this story, where do you draw the line in your ministry?

Churches tend to resemble their pastors, and that is especially true for new churches. The healthier the pastor, the more spiritually healthy the church will be. While sometimes a predecessor can create a toxic culture that can last for years, in many cases a church will begin to resemble the pastor after 5 years of influence.
Click here to get the full story. Want stories like this and more delivered to your inbox each week? Go here to order your next four issues for just $1! Why this story matters for church leaders: Church leaders may have more control over the spiritual health of their congregations than they think, and that can be good and bad news.
  • Influence: While leaders can’t change or influence everything in their churches, they at least have a very good reason to invest time in their own spiritual health and to model healthy practices.
  • Biblical Leadership: The Bible shows time and time again that leaders influenced the direction of the people they lead.
  • Taking Stock: Leaders need to periodically take stock of themselves and their church in order to determine the impact of their influence, and additional insight from a colleague may help as well.

Pastor Enoch Adeboye, pastor of Redeemed Christian Church of God, shared in a recent sermon his guidelines for marriage. Adeboye advised his members to marry within the church so that pastors can help them during difficult times, but he added that men should not marry a woman who cannot cook and who cannot pray for at least an hour.
Click here to get the full story. Want stories like this and more delivered to your inbox each week? Go here to order your next four issues for just $1! Why this story matters for church leaders: Hearing the way that a pastor undermines and limits women in another context can help us from keeping similar mistakes.
  • Control Issues? The pastor in this story encourages members of his church to only marry each other so that church leaders can help them, but is that crossing the line toward control?
  • Just Cooking? This pastor makes the mistake of placing restrictions around the role of women in a marriage. How does this view limit the particular gifts and callings of men and women?
  • What about men? Are there times when pastors focus too much on the roles of women and fail to challenge men in their marriages?
Gender roles can be a divisive topic in some churches. How do we call our members to the costs of discipleship while still honoring where they’re at with gender roles?

Thom Rainer writes that pastors can waste a lot of time on social media, counseling that they aren’t qualified to do, and handling phone calls and meetings that can drain time and energy. He suggests minimizing meetings, handling conversations as they come up, focusing on meeting agendas, and cutting non-essential tasks or having a secretary administrative tasks.

Why this story matters for church leaders: Find more time each week by cutting the stuff that doesn’t matter, planning more effectively, and removing the work outside your expertise.
  • Focus on Expertise: We all have our gifts and expertise, and leaders should focus on what only they can do or their specialties. If counseling is a time drain outside of your training, partner with a group to cover that area or empower someone else on your staff to handle it.
  • Plan Ahead: Limit your meetings, but for the meetings you keep, plan ahead with a meeting goal, a small number of agenda items, and include a small, essential team for the meeting.
  • Conserve Energy: Social media and phone calls can drain energy and emotions, so carefully manage each, limiting what you can to automation or voice mail.

Generation Z, those born after 1998, are the first generation that has been truly native to the internet and to computers. They make up 25% of the US population and will turn 18 this year.

A series of threats and vandalism incidents in America have many church attendees on their guard in the event of a radical Islamist attack. With plentiful guns and easy online access to radical teachings, many fear that a church could be the next terror attack target after the murder of Rev. Jacques Hamel, in the Normandy town of St.-Étienne-du-Rouvray. Many churches are adding security guards and working on ways to prepare members for an attack.

Why this story matters for church leaders: Security will become an important issue for the American church in the midst of radical extremists who may see churches as a key target.
  • A True Threat? The murder of a French priest by an ISIS extremist combined with threats against churches in America have some worried that an attack on a church could happen.
  • Preparations:S. law enforcement officials are taking security measures in some larger churches, but smaller to medium-sized churches should also review emergency procedures and may look into hiring security if necessary.
  • Security vs. Outreach: The majority of Muslims remain peace-loving and share many common values with Christians. Security threats from extremists should not prevent us from being good neighbors or sharing the Gospel.

In current church giving trends, 15% of the church will donate roughly half of the church’s budget, and that percentage tends to drop the larger the church. In addition, half of that 15% will donate half of the capital campaign dollars. This small segment of donors are critical for the success of any fundraising campaign or meeting a church budget.
Click here to get the full story. Want stories like this and more delivered to your inbox each week? Go here to order your next four issues for just $1! Why this story matters for church leaders: Finances are a day to day challenge for churches, so understanding the general trends of giving in most churches will save you time and help you focus your time and communication.
  • Ministry Focus vs. Communication Focus: While a church should seek to minister to those in need, the relatively small group of donors who provide the majority of the funds will need more communication about how their donations are used.
  • Church Growth Vs. Donor Growth: As your church grows, that small percentage of major donors will tend to grow proportionally and may even decrease.
  • Planning Capital Campaigns: Major donors will tend to cover even more of your costs for a capital campaign, which means that successful campaign tends to depend on communicating with a few key donors.

A LifeWay study found that 64% of Americans have had at least three conversations about politics in the past month, and 59% would rather talk about politics, compared to 41% who would rather talk about religion. 1 in 2 evangelicals talk about their religion more than politics. Men were more likely than women to prefer politics over religion.
Click here to get the full story. Want stories like this and more delivered to your inbox each week? Go here to order your next four issues for just $1! Why this story matters for church leaders: Contrary to the popular saying that polite conversation avoids politics and religion, many Americans prefer discussing politics rather than religion.
  • What to Talk About? Are there ways that we can make talking about religion more open and inviting, encouraging others to share their beliefs without the fear of being disrespected?
  • What to Avoid Talking About? Have Christians made the mistake of preferring politics over sharing the gospel? Have we sometimes mixed the two together too much?
  • Boundaries: It’s natural to expect people to hold back on talking about a deeply important matter like religion, and oftentimes we need to trust someone before talking about it.

Pastor Jonathan Greer was voted out of his position by 31 people at Mt. Sterling Baptist Church, and the reasons are allegedly very different.

Why this story matters to church leaders: This story is yet another example of the ways that racism continues to impact ministries and the challenges faced by pastors who work on reconciliation.
  • A Wounded Nation: Racism has left many wounds in American society, and it has been especially damaging in the church.
  • Opposition Expected: As church leaders work on reconciliation, they should expect opposition from members, and these members may hide their true motives.
  • Community Relationships: Relationships can be a helpful first step as church leaders reach out to leaders of the black community and bridge historic divides and right injustices.

The Pokémon Go mobile app for smartphones lets users track Pokemon characters by enabling the GPS on their phones to work with the app. Characters will appear as players walk around town, and oftentimes churches are one of the landmarks used, resulting in players venturing to churches whether or not they have an interest in it. This is an opportunity to meet people in your community and to be present with your congregation in a simple, fun way.

  • Kids these days: Church leaders can risk alienating their congregation and community if they make uninformed condemnations of games like Pokemon Go, even if there are unusual stories about players putting themselves in danger.
  • Pastors these days: Churches have been landmarks used by players, and it’s likely that many would not consider attending a church in the first place. Can pastors use this as an outreach opportunity rather than sending these players away?
  • Relationships matter: Whether or not your play Pokemon Go, the advantage of this new game is that people are leaving their homes to go out for walks and are meeting more people.
