The 2017 Charts: Small Churches and Very Small Churches
The 2017 Charts: Small Churches and Very Small Churches

Our annual listing of churches is one of CHRISTIAN STANDARD’s most popular features. This year scores of churches participated, including 77 small churches (average weekly worship attendance of 100 to 249 during 2017) and 51 very small churches (attendance of fewer than 100). In May we featured an article and statistics from 55 megachurches (2,000 or more in weekly attendance) and 72 emerging megachurches (1,000 to 1,999). In June we spotlighted 91 large churches (500 to 999 in weekly attendance) and 83 medium churches (250 to 499).

    Well, either a lot of churches have fallen off the map or they didn’t participate in this survey. I waited for the last one to come out [the listing of small and very small churches] and there’s almost nothing in Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota, or North Dakota on the list, where I know there are churches. Also I know of a few in Rockford, Illinois, and none are shown. It is a great list, I am just disappointed more churches chose not to participate. I came up with a list of more than a dozen that I know of that [should be on] the list–some are newer but some are long-established. I can’t wait to see the updated Christian Church Today site to see who makes the list.
