I recently came across an interesting article titled 5 Disruptive Church Trends That Will Rule 2016. In the article, which was written back in February 2016, the author lists five big trends to watch for in churches throughout 2016.
The 5 trends he listed were:
- Church online will become an advance, not just a supplement to or replacement for church
- Preachers will preach less often
- Experience will trump content
- Passion will beat polish
- Only the most engaged and the curious will attend
I thought he was right on with this article but would love to hear from you. Did you see any of these trends becoming major factors in 2016? In what ways was he right on? What did he maybe get wrong?
