Current Church Growth info

Each year OUTREACH magazine publishes “The Outreach 100” annual report on the largest and fastest-growing churches in America.

In response to this year’s report, Ed Stetzer, from Lifeway Research, has written a great article called “Learning from America’s Largest and Fastest-Growing Churches” that I think you should read. (It took me about 6 minutes to read it thoroughly.)

It ties in nicely with my recent posts on church growth (see parts 1, 2, and 3)  and “Growing Smaller with Groups”.

If you are interested, you can follow these links for Outreach’s 100 Largest Churches and 100 Fastest-Growing Churches.

Will OTCC ever make one of those lists? Don’t know. But I sure hope to impact our community the way some of these churches are impacting theirs. People are being saved. Lives and families are being changed. And that carries over into every other area – business, politics, education – everything.

We’re not playing games here. What we do at OTCC is literally a matter of life and death. What part are you playing to advance God’s kingdom in South Bend?
