Own the award winning documentary When God Left The Building and bring hope and new life to your congregation.
Tell A Friend
Nearly 4,000 churches close every year.
Why—and can it be stopped?

Director Thom Schultz set out on a journey to uncover why churches—once the heart and soul of their communities—are now shrinking in both size and influence. What he discovered serves as a powerful wake-up call to church leaders.

Viewers go behind the curtain at a congregation that's seen attendance plunge from 900 to 40. Witness innovative new forms of church that are thriving, from a pub outreach in Pennsylvania to a Texas ministry that gathers in 300 neighborhoods every week.

When God Left The Building will help your church…
  • See clearly a trend that's quietly shaking America's very foundation
  • Spark insights that can help their own churches be vibrant and strong
  • Experience hope—for the church as it finds new ways to impact the world
This DVD is intended for individual use only. Please purchase the appropriate license edition for church and community screening.

Q: How large a group is meant by a "community" viewing? I'm an English as a Foreign Language instructor in Japan so I always try to be careful about correct viewing and permissions with DVDs. Is a home viewing with a group of less than 6 other friends considered a community viewing which I'd need to purchase a $99 license for? I hope not, because I'd like to buy and share this DVD with that many friends only here in Japan. Not worth a $99 license fee for that, however.
