Church Lifecycle
The Church Lifecycle can be framed in three primary macro-stages, Incline, Recline and Decline. Your church is somewhere on that lifecycle and it’s important for leaders to know where and to know why. Complete this Church Lifecycle Assessment and you will find answers to these spiritually and strategically relevant questions.
Three Macro-Stages
Incline is the stage of church lifecycle when the ministry capacity of the church is increasing. Over time, the church is doing more and more ministry and the quality of that ministry is better and better. Incline is a strong stage featuring health, growth and multiplication.

Recline is the stage of church lifecycle when the ministry capacity of the church levels off into plateau. Over time, the church is doing the same ministry over and over at more or less the same levels of quality. Recline is a tepid, tread water stage featuring ministry management by routine, filling in the blanks.

Decline is the stage of church lifecycle when the ministry capacity of the church is decreasing. Over time, the church is doing less and less ministry and the quality of that ministry is more and more compromised. Decline is a weak stage featuring decreases in membership, attendance, giving and overall impact in the community.
