COVID-19 Church Survey Third Round Report

HOW CHURCH LEADERS ARE RESPONDING TO THE CHALLENGES OF COVID-19

Daniel Yang, Ed Stetzer, Todd Wilson and Andrew MacDonald

"Churches are displaying both courage and caution in returning to in-person gatherings this summer."

In partnership with the Billy Graham Center's Send Institute and ARC, Exponential conducted a survey of church leaders and pastors' responses to the COVID-19 epidemic and quarantine. The purpose of this polling is to help church leaders get a feel for where things are regarding the state of the Church and the significant challenges as they adapt to their new reality of remote ministry.

According to the 700+ church leaders who were surveyed, pastors and church leaders are experiencing the same uncertainty that we are seeing in other industries during this crisis. Churches are not exempt from this sense of uncertainty as they try to carve out new routines for weekly services and ministries. This most recent edition of the survey builds upon many of the same questions as our previous reports while also exploring in greater detail the decision about when to return to in-person gatherings. 

In the complete findings of this report you will find:

  • Trends in innovation
  • The complexity of returning to in-person gatherings
  • Current top priorities for church leaders
  • Trends in which voices are impacting churches' decisions to re-gather
