Is there a future for christianity?

American society has changed dramatically over the last generation; today’s congregation functions in a postmodern, post-traditional, multigenerational, multicultural world. Recent studies show that while congregations respond to societal change and agree about what needs to be done to respond more fully, there is still much to be done. In an article, Jeff Woods,  of the American Baptist Churches USA, discusses these changes and outlines the steps churches and pastors need to take to keep up with a changing world. Suitable for promoting an extended discussion by church boards, clergy groups, and denominational officials, the article is archived on Resources for American Christianity, a website that assists Christian leaders and others to understand the impact, trends and trajectories of Christianity in American society.
