COVID-19 Pandemic

Traditional Christian churches in America were already struggling and declining prior to COVID-19 Pandemic, however the COVID-19 Pandemic has drastically increased this decline.

COVID-19 Pandemic Effect

A resent study conducted by the Barna Research Group found that about “one out of five” people who identify as a “churchgoer ” did not attend a church service at any time during the COVID-19 Pandemic. They did not attend an in-person service, nor an online church service.

Before the COVID-19 Pandemic church attendance in America had already declined to the point that only 37 percent of “church going” adults normally attend a service every week, online or not

Prior to COVID-19 Pandemic

Prior to the COVID-19 Pandemic, a little more than half of practicing Christians (51 percent) in America attended an online or in-person service on a weekly basis where permitted.

Following that logic, prior to the COVID-19 Pandemic, only about 20% of of those who considered themselves practicing Christians were active “churchgoers”.

Post COVID-19 Pandemic

Many organizations that study and analyze church attendance believe that Post COVID-19 Pandemic recovery could be starting with only “1 of 10” initially returning to regular church attendance?
