At a time when pastors feel particularly under pressure, here’s some good news from the pews: Evangelical churchgoers are pretty happy with how things are going at their churches.
Most don’t think the sermons are too long; if anything, they’d like to see more in-depth teaching from leaders. They aren’t bothered by too many messages about giving. They don’t think social issues and politics play an outsized role in the teaching.
That’s according to a new survey of evangelical churchgoers in the US, the Congregational Scorecard conducted by Grey Matter Research and Consulting and Infinity Concepts.
Around three-quarters are satisfied with their congregation approach to various areas of church life and wouldn’t want it to change, the survey found.
Evangelicals are largely happy with their church and its teaching—if anything, they want to see pastors go more in-depth.
