Why churches are hurting

Published on

Americans are very generous. Donors continue to give just not through the church any more. Today donors are giving directly to organizations that are demonstrating impact and effectiveness in the cause they care about.

  • Why churches are hurting

    1. 1. Why Churches are Hurting butNon-Profits Aren’t Brad Cecil, CFRE
    2. 2. Introduction• Post Modern-pragmatist, partial-preterist, pentecostal – The world is as you find it and it is our job to change it!• The development and growth of the consumer church has peaked and is now in decline.• Contemporary theologies and eschatology have influenced a transition away from external social action – focusing instead on “attractional” models of outreach.• Donors responded by giving outside the church to social service doing the work that was once done by the church.• Donors are still giving - just not to the church.• The postmodern transition and the development of missional theologies has caused a return to social action and donors are responding.
