8 DISRUPTIVE CHURCH TRENDS THAT WILL RULE 2021

Having been through a year like no other, what can you expect as a church leader in 2021?

In all likelihood, this year will lead the church into the post-pandemic world. It won’t be the light switch you hope for (and suddenly, we’re all back!). Instead, it will be a gradual emergence into whatever our normalized future looks like. But at some point in 2021 you’ll look back and realize most of the pandemic is behind you and the future is ahead of you.

The question is, what kind of new reality will emerge?

For church leaders, it will be a different world for sure.

Since 2016, I’ve done an annual church trends post. For the most part, many of the trends have emerged and are still relevant to what we’re all experiencing right now. Some accelerated dramatically.

 

While no one can say exactly what the future holds, here are 8 trends I’m watching and would encourage you and your team to consider and process as well.

  1. The Majority Of Attenders May No Longer Be In The Room
  2. Growing Churches Will Shift Their Focus From Gathering To Connecting
  3. Some Pastors Will Try To Fill Auditoriums While Others Focus On Fulfilling The Mission
  4. Growing Churches Will See The Internet And Their Buildings Differently
  5. Content Alone Won’t Cut It. Community And Connection Will.
  6. Generational Differences Will Become Clearer Than Ever
  7. The Political And Ideological Churches Will Lose Influence With The Unchurched
  8. Spiritual Entrepreneurs Will Thrive

What's Your Church’s ‘Rep’?

What's the reputation of your church? That is a difficult question to ask, and you might not want to hear the answer to it, but it is a question I have been asking about the church I lead. What's our reputation?
