How will the economy impact Church Planting in America?

Will funding come to an end?

How will mission churches bring in new revenue streams?

Will all church planters become bi-vocational?

Existing church offerings are down. This may limit their ability to fund new church plants.

Numerous people have been laid-off that were once church staff.

Attendance at Church Planting conferences are down sharply, which may be a sign of the inability to afford the cost to attend or in a decrease the number of plants.

How does this new economic reality change the way churches are planted? Are church planters moving to more organic and decentralized models? Will more church doors close, consolidating Christians into larger churches?
