Frontlines Episode 11 – The New Megachurch Study Findings

November 2, 2020


Join us for Episode 11 with co-hosts Peyton Jones and Daniel Yang as they interview Warren Bird, leading researcher of megachurch trends and author or co-author of 33 books for ministry leaders on topics from healthy mergers to serial church planting.

This webinar is a preview of a 50-page online report to be co-released soon by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA). This report is the nation’s largest research project on megachurches – ever!

Findings include answers to these questions:

What’s different about megachurches that score highest for spiritual vitality?
Does going multisite help or hurt a church’s likelihood of also doing church planting?
How many church planters inherit a church facility through a merger?
What causes a megachurch’s growth to increase? To decrease?
What are megachurches doing well that churches of any size could easily scale and adapt?
What causes financial giving in megachurches to go up or down, and what can other churches learn from it?
What happens in a megachurch when the pastor who led during the church’s greatest growth era retires?
