Your Church's Top 10 Articles of 2009
Looking back at the articles you read most this past year.

Last week, we wrote about the Top 10 most-read posts on during 2009. This week, we're taking a look at the Top 10 most-read articles from, the website for Your Church magazine.

For a year riddled with bad economic news, there are a few surprises in these results (hint: Our No. 1 ranked story has nothing to do with the economy, or finances for that matter). What can we conclude from this? Probably not much. Except the fact that church administrators, executive pastors, pastors, and lay leaders wrestle with a variety of challenging, and often complicated, questions on a wide array of topics.

As a not-for-profit ministry, Christianity Today International is thankful it's in a position to help you answer these questions through Your Church,, and, as well as Church Law & Tax Report, Church Finance Today,,, and

It's our desire to help you keep your church safe, legal, and financially sound. Here's looking forward to 2010!

David–Thanks for your comment. This article published on December 21, 2009. I'm not sure what path brought you to it in 2013, but I can assure you it's a healthy part of our archives, and not something we're purporting as "current" today (although many of the topics remain relevant today). You can find our Top 10 church law articles of 2012 here: Blessings!

I'm confused. This is 2013. What is the point of the Top 10 articles from 2009 and the comment "looking forward to 2010"? I sure missed the point of reprinting old, old news.
