Only 3% of Protestant churches start a new church.

Ed Stetzer’s latest blog entry today had some interesting thoughts.

According to a 2008 survey by Lifeway, 85% of Protestant churches are involved in some way or another in missions. However, when asked specifically about that involvement, only 3% directly planted a church or sponsored a plant financially.

Could it be true that 97% don’t reproduce other churches?

The churches I grew up in all had a rich history of starting other churches in nearby communities. None of those churches have done that again in the last 25 years.

When was the last time the church you are a member of started a daughter church?
