Largest Participating Churches Revisited

How are the country’s Largest Churches adapting to ministry in an unprecedented year?

Through our collaboration with Lifeway Research, we sent an adapted survey to the churches on our Largest Participating Churches list in 2019 and 2020, seeking their in-person attendance averages for February and March 2021 (excluding Easter weekend), their average number of devices logged-in online, and the level of participation in adult discipleship activities as compared to their numbers in 2020, and asked them to compare the number of conversions they had in 2020 with their 2019 numbers.
