The New Reality and Church Finances


This is video #2 that is part of a larger panel discussion found here: New Reality - Panel Discussion

Social, economic, and cultural forces have turned the religious landscape upside down and have redefined our notion of church, prompting some to describe this phenomenon as a “new reality.” Many pastors, caught by these seismic shifts, have struggled for clarity in how to deal with irregular church attendance, lower giving, and a lack of volunteerism. In this feature, a panel of six experienced pastors and church leaders share how they re-tooled and re-focused their churches in the midst of sweeping change and created new earmarks for measuring ministry success. USA/Canada Regional Director Bob Broadbooks hosted the discussion, which included Bud Reedy, Max Rodas, Ron Salsbury, David Sharpes, Carla Sunberg, and Gene Tanner.
