The challenge
& Promise

Every week in the United States, 75-150 churches close their doors according to a decade-long study1. On average, Christian churches in North America need to net gain nearly 2,000 churches per year between now and 2050 just to keep the same church-to-population ratio we have today.2 It's a sobering reality. Yet, there's a glimmer of hope and resurgence despite the current decline:
  • Newly planted churches are found to be more effective than existing congregations at drawing people who aren't connected with a church.3
  • Now is a good time for church planters to develop multiethnic ministries focused on evangelism and community outreach; as the United States experiences extraordinary shifts in the nation's demographic makeup in the coming decades.3
  • Hispanic churches in the United States face unique challenges but are finding success in building community within their congregations and reaching those outside their walls. A recent study revealed a picture of Hispanic churches that are newer, younger and more effectively evangelistic than the average U.S. Protestant church.4

We believe in a future where every community has a thriving spiritual hub. Join us in the mission.

Together we will fulfill His
Great Commission.
Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop — a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. Whoever has ears, let them hear.
Matthew 13:8
