Billy Graham warns institutional church of attendance mega-shift.

Training Workshop Locations

When Jesus walked on this earth He spent His time with common people like you and me.  His goal — to  restore humanity. When Roman Emperor Constantine became a “Christian” he institutionalized Christianity.  What followed is a long story of professional clergy and expensive buildings. But that is fast changing.

Millions of Christ’s followers are “going” (leaving their church comfort zones) as they accept God’s invitation to join Him in His front-line missionary work – that of restoring humanity and bringing hope and healing to the broken, hurting, and hopeless. This new normal is radical action.  And you are invited.

Church Attendance Is Declining

%

60% of North American people are not interested in walking into a church building.

That means conventional churches are trying to reach 40% of the population. What about the 60%?

%

80% of North American churches are declining or plateaued.

The vast majority of the church’s growth comes from “switchers”—people who move from one church to the other. Researchers suggest only 1-3% of growth is due to conversion.

%

83.6% of North American people do not attend a conventional church on any given weekend.

95% of people in other Western cultures are not attending a conventional church.

Upside Down Leadership?

What exactly does that mean? We find that the biblical models of leadership are in stark contrast to the world’s models of leadership. While authority was generally indicated by one’s position, Jesus had a different idea for His church. It’s been called the “Upside Down Kingdom.” “The first shall be last…” “The blind will see, and those who see will become blind…” While Jesus Himself had no earthly position, He was often regarded as one who spoke with authority. He received that authority from His Father—and our Father—God. With Jesus’ life as an example, we embrace a church that functions by serving alongside one another, setting our dependance on the Father, and a collective burden to seek the lost.
