  1. Our church is at the crossroads of going back to 1 service. We have had 2 for approx 15 years. We run at 48% in one service and 32% in the other service. Combined that is 80, but as 2 services it sure feels empty and lacking energy because of the extra space. Individuals have energy, but corporately the church seems to struggle. Any thoughts or suggestions?

  2. How about adding simple rule #5: “Ditch the building” and funnel the tremendous savings to organic church-planting movements and the poor.

  3. This is super helpful, thanks Rick!

  4. How long do you gage the 80% full rule before pulling the trigger on another service? Our contemporary service will occasionally hit or exceed the 80% mark, but may also have Sundays under that.

  5. The stage and the sound crew through all those venue changes must have faced tremendous challenges as well. I wonder if there are any resources that they used or developed during that time that might help others in the same situation?
