The Barna team has increasingly felt the urgency to help prepare the Church for its collective future. We are pouring everything we’ve learned into The State of the Church 2020—our most comprehensive effort yet. We hope that our State of the Church project can provide you with a realistic and-hopeful context and assist you in discerning a faithful direction forward in our chaotic, disruptive culture. We firmly believe in the work of the local church and we want to see people and pastors flourishing and their churches thrive. We want to help you better understand and measure what matters for the sake of Gospel transformation.
State of the Church shines a light into what matters to leaders—human flourishing and organizational thriving. When you know how your people are doing in areas of relationship, spiritual, physical, vocational and financial health you’ll be equipped to bring the gospel to life in ways that reach the hearts of your people. It’s time to take the guesswork out of ministry.
