10 signs your church is trendy

Thought I’d post a lighthearted list of signs your church might fall on the side of super trendy, hipstery, and/or cool. Have a laugh, and feel free to add your additions in the comments below – Out of the Wilderness

10 Signs Your Church is Trendy

  • Forget hymns or anything by Hillsong. The worship team is teaching you songs by OneRepublic, Taylor Swift, or Coldplay.


  • The pastor calls passing the offering plate, “the original crowd-funding.”


  • People there are all pretty much the same age as you… that is, if you’re 25-35 yrs old.


  • You overhear someone call a hymnal, “vintage.”

  • Ignite. Encounter. Resurrection. The word ‘church’ isn’t actually in the name of the church.


  • The Gathering. Oasis. Red Door. Glide. The church sounds like an apartment complex or night club.


  • Before church, you stop by a coffeeshop… and it’s in the church.

  • At any particular point, you count 47 guitarists on stage.


  • You haven’t brought a Bible in years.


  • You leave a church service feeling great about yourself.

Thanks for checking out the list! If you have any to add, feel free to comment below 🙂
