2017 Fastest-Growing Churches in America

What are the country’s Fastest-Growing Churches and what’s contributing to their growth?

Each year, Outreach magazine seeks to answer that question through our collaboration with LifeWay Research. We send a survey to thousands of U.S. churches, seeking their attendance averages for February and March (excluding Easter weekend)—numbers are then compared with the previous year, and churches are ranked, factoring both numerical and percentage growth.
