Vocal Point-Dr. Byron Johnson

Topic: Churches Closing

Is the church in America dying? So many different sources seem to say so. But Dr. Byron Johnson, a professor at Baylor who used to teach at Princeton and at the University of Pennsylvania, does not agree. He says that a lot of church activity is under-reported. He said that in their program at Baylor, they studied 3 communities in the US: one in central Texas, one in Bellingham, Washington, and one in Richmond, Virginia. They found there was a significant underreporting of how many churches were found in those communities. Dr. Byron Johnson joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss church closings and the wider picture. www.baylorisr.org
