2022 Fastest-Growing Churches in America

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

The Lifeway Research team solicited participation from more than 13,000 churches. This is a self-reported survey, based on in-person attendance averages, not membership. Churches that participated answered questions about their 2022 in-person weekend attendance averages for February and March (excluding Easter) as compared to their 2021 numbers. The final Fastest-Growing rankings reflect an average of numerical gain and percentage gain.
