What Matters Most When Choosing A Church

A recent article in the Winter edition of Facts and Trends, a periodical of Lifeway Christian Resources, presents from Pew Research what matters most to people when choosing a church to attend:

Quality of Sermons                          83%

Feeling welcomed by Leaders         79%

Style of Worship                               74%

Location                                           70%

Education for Kinds                          56%

Friends/Family in Congregation       48%

Volunteering Opportunities               42%

Other Factors                                    29%

As editor of PastorLife, I found it interesting that the quality of sermons rated as the top consideration when people are choosing a church. That is one reason our ministry exists here at PastorLife. We desire to assist you in preparing biblically sound, inspiring, illustrated, and effective sermons week after week.

This Christmas, we pray for you – that you will experience great worship in your churches, see fruit from your labor for the Lord and will enjoy some quality time with your family as you celebrate the birth of Christ.
