Reshaping The Church Researcher George Barna has identified 4 factors he describes as “indicative of the reshaping of the church in the U.S.” They are: (1) The priorities embraced by church leaders. Most local churches essentially ignore: ministry to children, ministry to families and prayer. (2) Congregations are rapidly incorporating new technologies into their activities. (3) The slow demise of the African-American church community. (4) The changing of the guard among the “leaders of the leaders.” (Barna Update, 12/20/05)
