Barna Trends 2017


Last week a buddy of mine got a great Valentine’s Day gift from his wife: a book called Barna Trends 2017 (romantic right?!).

He let me flip through it and I bought a copy of my own immediately (on Amazon). I highly recommend it.

And just to be clear, Partners In Ministry had no part in producing it, nor do we benefit from you buying it. I’m recommending it because I know any pastor or ministry leader will benefit from this awesome assessment of our current culture.

One surprising finding that stood out for me: 88% of Americans go to a church with less than 500 people. So mega churches might get the media coverage, but almost 9 out of 10 Americans don’t go to a mega church.

Anyway, this book is filled with great data and more––interviews and articles too. Good stuff. Thought you’d like to know.
