Vital churches offer a mix of contemporary(newer forms of worship style) and traditional services.
Vital churches have preachers who tend to use more topical sermons series in traditional services
Worship Drivers of Vitality
Vital churches use more contemporary music (less blended music that includes traditional tunes) in contemporary services.
Vital churches use more multi-media in contemporary services (some congregations in other parts of the world may have limited access or do not use multi-media to the same extent and therefore it may not be as important as in some cultures.)
