How Weekend Church Services Will Change In the Future

Carey Nieuwhof has some thoughts about How Weekend Church Services Will Change In the Future:

Many of the churches that are reaching people under 30 are doing it with strong teaching ministries. John Piper has a lot of Millennials listening. So do Louis Giglio and Jon Tyson. … Churches that are reaching people with no church background have a developing issue. At Connexus Church, where I serve, over 50% of our growth is directly from people with no church background or attendance. … That’s amazing, but the question is how do you give people background to the faith they’re adopting while continuing to communicate in a way that expands the mission?

So is the answer to move teaching into small groups?

The communication skill set that will be most highly effective will be a preacher who can both preach in a way that motivates insiders and teach in a way that is accessible to outsiders.

Nieuwhof has previously written on why people attend church less often and 7 ways churches can respond to that trend. He also listed 10 predictions about attendance patterns.
