Many Christian ministries appear to be surviving during this economic downturn. Some are even flourishing.
About 72 percent of the ministries surveyed by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability reported they'd exceeded, met or received contributions within 10 percent of their goal for the last quarter.
Only 28 percent of ministries were more than 10 percent short of reaching their goal. Still, several ministries are cutting back on spending over uncertainties of what's in store for the remainder of the year..
Those layoffs included workers at Focus on the Family and the Billy Graham Association.
