10 predictions about the future Church and shifting attendance patterns

Church Attendance

Carey Nieuwhof the founding pastor of Connexus Church north of Toronto has written an interesting post on 10 predictions about the future Church and shifting attendance patterns:

  1. The potential to gain is still greater than the potential to lose
  2. Churches that love their model more than the mission will die
  3. The gathered church is here to stay
  4. Consumer Christianity will die and a more selfless discipleship will emerge
  5. Sundays will become more about what we give than what we get
  6. Attendance will no longer drive engagement; engagement will drive attendance
  7. Simplified ministries will complement people’s lives, not compete with people’s lives
  8. Online church will supplement the journey but not become the journey
  9. Online church will become more of a front door than a back door
  10. Gatherings will be smaller and larger at the same time
