America’s Churches Have Changed in a Decade

According to the 2006-07 National Congregations Study there were more megachurches in 2007 than in 1998, but a majority of churches are small with a median of 75 regular participants.  However, most people still attend large churches - a median 400-member congregation. In a decade, informal styles of worship have dramatically risen. These are a few of the trends evident from the first and second waves of the National Congregations Study survey.
