This is also clear when viewing the diversity of UCC denominational partnerships, which Kristina previously shared. In looking at clergy differences, there a significant increase in the percentage of male clergy serving in ecumenical churches, who also on average have been ordained longer than clergy of the singly UCC congregations.
Again, this is attributed to the increase in ethnic diversity within these denominational partnerships.
We also compared findings from the identical questions around worship attributes between the ecumenical survey and the FACT Survey. Multiply-affiliated congregations are more likely to hold more than one weekly worship service; and these services are more likely to vary in style from each other. Survey responses suggest this could be attributed to serving bilingual community congregations and the varying theological outlooks of the regularly participating adults. In addition, multiply-affiliated congregations are more likely to have changed their worship style in the past five years.
One piece of evidence to support this theory is that the majority of survey respondents claimed to customize worship by mixing traditions and utilizing a variety of resources in order to find the right balance for their unique congregation; therefore, experimentation and change with worship is more acceptable within multiply-affiliated churches.
