Study says larger churches hit harder by economy
from Associated Baptist Press
From Jan. 15, 2010:
The economic recession has hit larger churches harder than it has smaller ones, according to a new survey by the Barna Group. Percentage-wise, churches with fewer than 100 members lost more of their income than churches larger than 1,000 adults (16 percent of income for smaller churches versus 9 percent for large churches). Large churches, however, were more likely to report being under financial duress. Researchers speculated that belt tightening may feel more painful for larger churches, because since they have larger budgets, in actual dollars their cuts are larger.
