Why Plant a Lifetree Café?

Simply put, to reach the people that you’re not reaching.

As wonderful as your church may be, you’re going to need to approach ministry differently if you hope to reach future generations.

According to the groundbreaking new book Why Nobody Wants to Go to Church Anymore, researchers have identified several key factors that may be keeping people away. According to surveys, 87% of people say "I feel judged" at church and a whopping 91% of people say that "church people are a bunch of hypocrites." With stats like that, it's no wonder most churches aren't growing. Even worse, churches are closing at an alarming rate of 10 per day.

The good news: your church can break the mold. Your church and your people—can become irresistible in your community.

Authors Thom and Joani Schultz expose common church practices that drive people away and thwart spiritual growth. And they also reveal how "Four Acts of Love" lived out through your Lifetree Café can bring people flocking back—four essential keys to reaching the "unchurched" and "dechurched."
"I feel judged."
"You're welcome just as you are."
"I don't want to be lectured."
"Your thoughts are welcome; your doubts are welcome."
"Church people are hypocrites."
"We're all in this together."
"Your God is irrelevant."
"God is here ready to connect with you in a fresh way."
