Among churches today, aging congregations and low church attendance by younger generations have become serious issues. Last year, from mid-May to the end of August, Presence surveyed different churches in Southern California (specifically, in the San Gabriel Valley area) and Northern California. We hope that the information from the survey will help churches better serve the next generation.
There is a saying, “Behind every great man there is a great woman.” But when you think about it, there is at least one woman behind every person. In addition to mothers, there are female mentors, other women much older than we are, or female friends in our lives who care for, cultivate, accompany, guide, and inspire us. The women mentioned in this month’s blog article are perfect examples of such women.
Who are the women whom God has arranged behind you to lead you to where you are today?
