Survey: Christian Ministries Hit Hard by Recession

Ad Feedback

A recent study shows that ministries are suffering financially in this tough economy.

The Christian Post reports that the study shows 38 percent of churches reported a decline in giving in 2009. Only 29 percent reported the same the previous year.

Churches in the Pacific and Mountain states were hit the hardest this year. They experienced a 55 percent and 46 percent decline in giving, respectively.

Washington Times Religion Editor Julia Duin appeared on Monday's CBN Newschannel's Morning program to talk about this troubling trend.
