Early Results of Largest North American Cross-Denominational Study


The New Faces of Church Planting is North America’s largest-scale, most cross-denominational survey designed to provide a 2022 “state of church multiplication.”

Warren Bird, who is leading the research project, will be presenting the full results at this year’s XPSummit event May 24-25.

Warren Bird, Ph.D., researches cutting-edge churches and works with their leaders to multiply their evangelistic and disciplemaking impact. He is widely recognized as among the nation’s leading students, researchers and writers about megachurches. Bird has authored over 30 books and more than 30 major research reports. He recently served as Research Director at Leadership Network, North America’s leading organization to help entrepreneurial church leaders in growing churches move from ideas to implementation to increased influence and impact.

Bird is scheduled to share early insights emerging from this new research study — even before the formal presentation at XP Summit. CTT Editor-in-Chief, Kenny Jahng and Rich Birch, founder of unSeminary.com will interview Warren Bird during the event.

Church leaders can still participate in the study by filling out the study survey online.

  • What Impact Did the Pandemic Have on Multiplication? You know that COVID-19 impacted you and your church but what impact did the pandemic have on multiplication have across a number of church movements?
  • What Next Steps Should Your Church Take? Get your questions answered around what next steps you and your church should take around multiplication. Bird will field questions from live-stream attendees directly.

The special live-stream event will be held on Wednesday April 6, 11am Eastern.

Registration is free for this behind-the-scenes look at the landmark study of the year.
