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 survey asked well over 12,000 church planters to share their experience in a 20 to 30 minute online survey across 17 different denominational and church planting network organizations. About 1200 church planters completed this survey, of which a reduced number of 843 fit the criteria of being planted since 2007 and still operating today.

So what did we learn through all of our research? Well, you’ll have to read through this report to find out, but most importantly, we learned that many church plants are effectively reaching the lost. More attention and resources are getting funneled towards church planting. Church planting is also no longer located on the fringe of church life, but is now an anticipated and even preferred destination for leaders. It is a priority for denominations, networks, and local churches.
