We're back from our brief podcast hiatus! And we've got lots of NEW data and stories to share.

We recently partnered with Blackbaud for a special edition of our quarterly research report, The Unstuck Church Report. More than 550 churches shared with us how they're continuing to respond to the coronavirus crisis.

There was some good news:

  • Churches seem to be finding themselves in a better financial position than they previously anticipated.
  • Online engagement remains strong compared to pre-pandemic in-person attendance.
  • And, though most churches have not re-opened for in person services, many are planning on reopening their buildings for weekend services soon.

But there were also a number of things we found alarming, particularly as we consider the long-term ramifications of what we're experiencing right now.

In this episode, Tony and Amy discuss the findings of the survey—along with anecdotal findings from our work helping 50+ churches navigate ministry strategy in the last couple of months—and we share our take on what all of it is telling us about what's coming and how we should be preparing.
