Sam Rainer is a local church pastor, writer, speaker, and president of Rainer Research. He just wrote an article entitled, "10 (Unexpected) Church Trends to Surface by 2020."
According to Sam, the first unexpected trend in the American Church by 2020 is the following:
"The diverse church will explode in growth over the next 10 years. And instead of looking at this trend through the lens of pragmatic church growth practices, I believe it needs to be viewed as a picture of the Gospel. What man segregates, the Gospel unifies. Get on board with this trend not because it will grow your church, but rather because it was God’s plan for his church from the beginning."
Sam has nailed it! Bravo Sam! To read more, click here.
