What To Do When … You’re an Aging Congregation


What To Do When … You’re an Aging Congregation

The average age of church members in the US is around 55 – and it’s higher in mainline churches. However, the longer a church has been established, the older the average age of its membership. Today, it’s not uncommon for the average age of a small to mid-sized church to be mid-60s or even young-70s. And even though larger churches … even mega churches … are experiencing the aging-effect, by and large these churches have significantly lower age-averages than smaller churches. In this episode, Drs. Bill and Kris address this phenomenon and offer strategies to deal with the issue.
