State of Church Planting in the U.S. 2015 Report

By Daniel Im

Church Planting Matters.

In fact, it matters greatly. First of all, the Church matters because it’s Christ’s bride. Beyond that though, church planting specifically matters because the Church is God’s intended vehicle to advance the gospel and grow believers into the image of Jesus.

Because church planting matters, it’s important that we know the current state of church planting. What’s happening? Are we succeeding? What trends and movements are shaping church planting? The survey results you see in this report represent the largest, most thorough survey done yet on church planting in the U.S. since 2007 (The Canadian version of this report is available here).
