On Wednesday, June 17th, I presented Where We Are and Where We Can Go. Based on my congregational study and other research, I shared a variety of information about the current situation at St. John's and its implications for the future. Included were parish strengths; data about age, giving, ministry involvement, and worship attendance by various cohorts of parish households; Natural Church Development scores; census demographic data; information about the dechurched and the unchurched; and two possible directions the church might go in the future.
The entire presentation is about an hour, and is split into two half-hour videos below. If you have questions or would like a copy of my slides or some of my data, feel free to leave a comment below.
