Pastors and Parents Differ on Youth Ministry Goals

The tug-of-war between a parent’s protective instincts and their desire to raise fearless kids is felt in youth ministries. In partnership with Youth Specialties and YouthWorks, Barna conducted a major study on the state of youth ministry in the United States, looking at the expectations of pastors, youth leaders and parents.

La La Land to Living Rooms: A Year in Movies

The 89th Academy Awards ceremony is around the corner, but as past Barna research has shown, even though the Oscars are one of the most-watched events on television, the films that fill theaters don’t often fill trophy shelves.

Who leads their church alongside them—and is it working? Barna conducted a major study into how today’s faith leaders are navigating life and leadership in an age of complexity. Here are some findings.

Ten Lessons of Church Expansion

In partnership with Cornerstone Knowledge Network, Barna undertook research to learn more about the current culture and methods of planting and growing congregations. Here are the top ten lessons from pastors and church leaders who have taken the plunge to expand their ministry.
