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?

We are better together!

“I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
John 17:22-23
