It is cliche to say the world is changing. And it is cliche that churches are changing. But churches are indeed changing. Some of the changes were predictable, but some were not. Thom looks at three of the major changes most people did not see coming. In this third of three episodes, he looks at the dramatic decline of conversion growth in American churches.

  • Defining conversion growth.
  • The focus on anything but evangelism.
  • Transfer growth created an illusion of health.
  • Conversion growth is not celebrated in most churches.
  • Youth evangelism has declined dramatically.
