3 www.finishers.org  “I am intensely interested in the future because I expect to spend the rest of my life there.”  “Futurists exist to make soothsayers look good at predicting the future.”  85% of what will exist 25 years from now is already with us.  I am not a prophet! I will tell you what I am seeing, hearing and reading and what I think it means.  Remember: My conclusions may be totally wrong.

4 www.finishers.org  Response from Mission Execs who travel globally  U.S. Church growth is transfer growth  How the U.S. Church has changed  ??? The future of the Mega Church

5 www.finishers.org  Mission Establishment has plateaued.  We are a “ Mature industry. ”  Support is increasingly individual not corporate.  Little relationship with the growing parts of today ’ s Church  We are numerically much smaller than the global churches we planted.
