As we begin a new year, we are back with our second annual church predictions. In this episode, we share 9 predictions for 2022.

Welcome to episode 256 of Practical Church Planting. You can watch this episode below, or subscribe to the podcast and get our episodes delivered right to you.

Here are the predictions we discuss in this episode:

  • Churches that engage their people the best during the week will see the most numerical growth
  • Growth in giving will outpace growth in attendance
  • Bible teaching will be more evangelistic than topical series/life skills help
  • Online church focus will swing back to in person gatherings
  • Churches that prioritize an online presence will grow in person much more than those that do not
  • Large numbers of pastors will continue to resign
  • Simplified churches will engage people better than complex ones
  • People will care more about community than what church has the best options for them
  • The ability to grow is greater than the ability to shrink
