Urbanization: Will Our Churches Have an Impact?

February 27, 2013

With roughly 84% of Americans now living in cities, many of which are marked by communities in desperate need of revitalization, what does this mean for the church in the coming years?  Can current church models have a lasting impact in urban areas? 

This third video post in a series from our recent “What’s Next Online Conversation” features Mike Slaughter from Ginghamsburg Church talking about the impact and opportunities available in urban areas for churches.  How is your church involved in the revitalization of communities in urban areas?  What opportunities for impact do you seen in the next 5-10 years?

As we prepare to gather our first group of churches as part of the What’s Next Leadership Community, we would love to hear from you regarding your hunches on ‘what’s next’ for your church.  What questions are you wrestling with?  What opportunities lie ahead?  What challenges are you actively developing solutions for?  What strengths do you believe God will leverage in the months and years ahead?  Post your thoughts in the comments below.

For more information or to join in the conversation, visit the What's Next Leadership Community website.
