Recent surveys including the American Religious Identification Survey 2008 and the National Survey of Congregations 2010, revealed a number of areas of concern for today’s church, including:

  • spiritual vitality and community
  • membership and attendance
  • a clear sense of mission
  • biblical literacy
  • financial pressures
  • brokenness in and around us
  • overwhelming diversity
  • leadership
  • and more

The Living Church series addresses these issues from a congregational perspective, responding with creative and constructive strategies for the American church in the 21st century. Each Living Church resource offers:

  • Biblical foundations
  • Experience-based insights
  • Action steps for today’s church leaders
