Churchgoers overwhelmingly appreciate the way their pastors handled COVID-19 crisis


NASHVILLE – Churchgoers are pleased with the way their pastors navigated the COVID-19 pandemic.

In fact, a Lifeway poll earlier this year found that churchgoers are overwhelmingly proud of the way their leaders handled the crisis.

Nashville-based Lifeway Research found that almost 9 in 10 Protestant churchgoers, 86 percent, said they are proud of how their church responded during the coronavirus pandemic.

The numbers were released in March.

“Pastors have heard their share of second-guessing for how they have handled their church’s response to COVID-19,” said Scott McConnell, executive director of Lifeway Research. “But a large majority of churchgoers agree with their church’s various responses, and few are critical overall.”
