(Worthy News) – More Protestant churches closed than opened in 2019, a trend that is expected to continue amid the COVID-19 pandemic, which greatly restricted church activity and religious services.
The new LifeWay Research survey, which analyzed church data from across 34 Protestant denominations, found that around 3,000 churches started in 2019, while some 4,500 Protestant congregations closed.
Scott McConnell, executive director of LifeWay Research, said that, even prior to the pandemic, “the pace of opening new congregations was not even providing enough replacements for those that closed their doors.” [ Source: CBN News (Read More…) ]
