7 Signs Your Church Is Feeling Squeezed

As a place of community, worship, and spiritual growth, your church strives to be welcoming and accommodating to all who enter its doors. However, as congregations grow and ministries expand, physical space can become a limiting factor. Recognizing the signs that make your church feel squeezed is crucial for your ministry to continue growing! Here are seven telltale signs to watch out for: 

  1. Your parking lot is overflowing 
  2. You have multiple services and still not enough seating for those in attendance
  3. You lack the space to accommodate your growing classes, small groups, and ministries comfortably
  4. You have strained infrastructure – only a few restrooms, a small kitchen space, etc.
  5. You have increased congestion in common areas – the foyer, the coffee lounge, etc. 
  6. You have a lack of storage for essential supplies, equipment, and resources
  7. Your staff and ministry team feel strained, overworked, overwhelmed 

Do any of these signs sound familiar? Your ministry might be feeling all of them. But, recognizing the signs that your church is feeling squeezed is the first step in identifying that a change may need to take place.
