For the past forty years mainline churches have struggled, while conservative evangelical churches, both denominational and non-denominational, have experienced explosive growth. Will the next forty years see more of the same? Or is it possible mainline churches will again move to the forefront of ministry?
The church of the next forty years – the church that reaches a new generation, will not be the conservative church of the 80’s and 90’s. And while the mainline churches have great potential to reach the next generation, it will not be the mainline church of the 40’s and 50’s that will reach today’s young people.
In this year’s Leadership Institute, Recentering – Striking the Balance, we will help you see why mainline churches matter now more than ever, what ways mainline churches must change if they are going to reach the next generation, and what the mainline can learn from the “emerging church.”
