The State Of Australian Churches

Is church growth in Australia more about the movement of Christians between churches rather than conversion?  How is the Baptist movement of churches doing when it comes to church growth through conversion growth?  What common themes are there with churches that grow through conversion? What’s best: missional or attractional?  Ruth Powell knows more about this than we could ever imagine. As a researcher with NCLS she has a vast knowledge of what is happening in churches across the land.  Crossover is joining with each State Union to help fund every church who needs it to participate in the 2011 National Church Life Survey so that we can have valuable intelligence that can help shape our missional planning.  Apart from giving her perspective on where the church is at, in this interview (which appears on our latest iDeas DVD Volume 6, 2011), Ruth helps us understand the value of participating in the NCLS this year.
