3D-DVD-cover 500 no licence

While more than 4,000 churches close every year, others are finding reasons for great hope and a bright future. Why?

Director Thom Schultz set out on a journey to uncover why churches—once the heart and soul of their communities—are now shrinking in both size and influence. What he discovered gives you unprecedented insight and serves as a powerful wake-up call.

You’ll go behind the curtain at a congregation that’s seen attendance plunge from 900 to 40. Witness innovative new forms of church that are thriving, from a pub outreach in Pennsylvania to a Texas ministry that gathers in 300 neighborhoods every week.

Experience hope as you get a refreshing glimpse into the future of faith.
