HIRR Megachurch Report Continues to Make News

Our recent report on megachurches continues to make news in publications around the globe.

Scott Thumma, Professor of Sociology of Religion and Director of the Seminary’s Hartford Institute for Religion Research, and Dr. Warren Bird, Vice President of Research and Equipping for the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, released the report in October. It’s called “Megachurch 2020: The Changing Reality in America’s Largest Churches.”

Based on an extensive survey conducted earlier this year, the study was produced by the Hartford Institute for Religion Research, the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, and Leadership Network.

Here are some news reports on the findings:
