Barna Report: The Economy's Impact On Churches

By The Barna Group

Although some recent economic news offers positive signs, the donor landscape continues to show little indications of improvement. In the wake of the poor economy, many American donors have cut back on donations to churches and especially to other non-profit organizations, and they have become more pessimistic about the future of economic recovery. These are a few of the conclusions of a new Barna research study. The findings are based upon a nationwide sample of 1,008 American adults, conducted in January and early February, 2010.
Here are links to each of the three parts of this insightful research:

Part 1 - Churches are Down 7% in 2009

Part 2 - How Churches Have Adapted

Part 3 - Donors Reduce Giving

Until next time...share the journey and enjoy the ride!
