What Is The ‘State Of The Church’ In San Antonio?
Although some sociologists claim that we are living in a post-Christian America, those training to become clergy in Catholic and Protestant churches disagree.
According the research group Barna, only 38 percent of Americans are active churchgoers while almost the same amount surveyed, 34 percent, are minimally active and have not attended a service in the last six months.
In light of declining membership and changing worship styles, what can the church do to stay relevant? Who are the new leaders in San Antonio's faith community?
- Rev. Will Rice, director of communications and media support for the Rio Texas Conference - United Methodist Church
- Father Christopher Munoz, pastor-administrator of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in San Antonio
- Rev. Ann E. Helmke, community faith-based liaison for the City of San Antonio Department of Human Services
