In a 2005 study of annual church attendance that included 200,000 American churches, it was revealed that American churches are suffering from low Sunday attendance. Here are the results of that study.
25% of Americans show up to church at least three out of every eight Sundays.
46% of churchgoers attend a church of 100 or fewer, just 8% of churchgoers attend a church of 1000 or more.
Only two in 10 millennials believe church attendance is important.
59% of millennials who grew up in the church have dropped out at some point.
50% of all churches in America average less than 100 in worship attendance.
40% of all churches in America average between 100 and 350 in attendance, and only 10% of all churches in America average more than 350 in attendance.
The biggest stat is, if present trends continue, the percentage of the population that attend church in 2050 is estimated to be almost half of what it was in the 1990s, a drop from 20.4% to 11.7%.
Based on these numbers we have to do something different to reach this next generation for Christ. If you agree than keep reading.
Do you love God but don't like the traditional means of church?
Dynamic Encounter Ministries is launching its movement of Dynamic Life Church. It's more than a movement, it's a lifestyle. We seek to focus on more than activities in a building. But focus on building relationships through loving God, Loving People and Making disciples.
Our goal is not to merely have a physical building but to focus on outreach ministry. Bringing the love of God to his people and not waiting for them to come to a place. The outreach events will feature things like, feeding the homeless, gas give aways, laundry ministry where we pay for person's laundry, prostitution ministry, etc.
Here is some of the work we have done in the past: https://youtu.be/x8wG84vrnTk
