Barna: 1 in 5 churches may not survive COVID-19

A study by the Barna Group shows as many as 1 in 5 churches may not survive the shutdowns and changes brought on by COVID-19. Many of these churches may be forced to shut their doors within the next 18 months.

Barna Group president David Kinnaman said their surveys show…

*Confidence among pastors that their churches will make it through the pandemic has declined from 70% in May to around 58% now.

*Even churches that have reopened are seeing smaller numbers of people returning.

*Roughly 32% of practicing Christians have also stepped away from ‘streaming’ worship.

BOTTOM LINE: What is clear is the Gospel will not be contained in any one building, or even on a digital feed. God’s Word is powerful.  And no virus will stop the move of God’s Spirit among His people.
