Since 2003, Dr. Bill Day, Associate Director of the Leavell Center for Evangelism and Church Health and Professor of Evangelism at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, has being monitoring and recording healthy, growing churches. Since the 1980s churches and denominational leaders have been discussing the state of the church. Is the church as a whole growing, plateaued, or declining. In this slideshow Dr. Day speaks to this exact topic and how the church has changed in the last 12 years. The results may shock you.
