Interesting article about church building trends

Post by brent » Tue May 20, 2014 7:28 pm

From: "The Death of the Mall and the Future of Church Buildings"

"Most large megachurch buildings were constructed primarily for the favor of the Boomers.

But the children of the Boomers, Generation X and, even more, the Millennials, have been pushing for more intimacy and smallness. They triggered the unprecedented growth of Starbucks. They have been the key movers in social media, which has fostered a new online intimacy.

Among the Christian Millennials there is a desire for greater intimacy in church. They are in many ways triggering a new small group revolution. And though they may not have an explicit aversion to large church facilities, neither are they attracted to them."

I have been seeing this for a while. The days of the show-biz church are numbered and I could not be happier.

Was bound to happen, who wants to leave home for fellowship anymore? especially if it means it has to be a crowd of 5000 people who are only there to see the band.
