– THIS SITE DOES TWO THINGS –
1
See the whole church
In the Bible, 'church' is all believers in a geographic area, as the church in Corinth, Ephesus, Thessalonica, Rome, etc.

The WHOLE CHURCH of the Twin Cities is comprised of more than 3,400 individual congregations. It's impossible for anyone to know and visit all these individual churches and hold a composite picture in mind. The only way to see the WHOLE CHURCH is through statistics and reports.

This site is the only place where you can see the WHOLE CHURCH of the Twin Cities, track its component parts in detail, and learn what's working well in ministry.

See community culture
To grow and pass Christian faith to next generations, churches need to be relevant in modern society. Culture in the Twin Cities is changing, and changing fast!

Half of the people in the Twin Cities are now Millenniums or Gen Zs – under age 38 – and nearly one-third are people of color. The new generations have a different way of thinking than the older white generations.

This site explains the differences and reveals new ways of presenting and living the Gospel. Here you find facts from careful observation and professional research and projections into the future.
This is your vantage point for seeing the Twin Cities spiritual landscape

Most churches are slowly shrinking, but some are exploding with growth. This site explains the differences. Here you get vital information for making decisions about the future of your church.
