It’s no secret that the pandemic has affected church attendance. People are hesitant to gather in any public place where they can catch the virus. Many church leaders have a tough time adapting to the changing world.
On top of that, church attendance isn’t already doing great in this century. Generation Z is already the least religious generation we’ve seen so far. When you add these two facts up, things might not look great for your church.
Thankfully, there are solutions.
This article will walk you through all you need to know about church growth during the pandemic.
What Does Church Growth Mean?
Before we let you know how to grow your church, it’s important to understand what we mean by church growth.
The first to remember is that a church is not an Apple store. It’s a place for community and spiritual learning. You’re not going to get everyone into your doors, but those who do come will find solace and connection within the embrace of your church seats.
Reaching new people and expanding your audience is important, but so is spiritual growth.
Use the Internet
The internet isn’t just a place young people go to amuse themselves. It’s weaved deep into our culture. Getting on the internet will allow you to implement any church growth ideas and church growth tools you come across a lot more effectively.
It will also let many of the young Christians in the world know about your church. And help you better reach your current congregation, inspiring spiritual growth and increasing spiritual aspiration.
Social media is where a lot of attention is going these days. If you’re looking for something more casual, easy to update, and informal, check out Twitter and Instagram. If you’re looking for something more serious and business-oriented, check out LinkedIn.
Social media provides you with a plethora of options for growth. You can share videos of sermons, pictures of aesthetically pleasing displays, or even send text posts out to people.
Live streaming could be the most important tool to implement during the pandemic. Living streaming allows you to reach your congregation without them having to gather dangerously close together.
These days, live streaming is much easier than ever before. All you’ll need to start with is a mobile device with a decent microphone and camera. If you want to upgrade your services, there are many cheap options for microphones and cameras.
