Though not often discussed, religious organizations are businesses: they have revenue streams and a cost structure and strategies for success. With Tax Day behind us and Easter/Passover ahead, it seemed like a good time to dive into this strange territory. Host Vicky Wolak and IBISWorld analyst Anna Miller discuss the advantages and challenges of operating one of these organizations, along with what opportunities and threats await them in the years ahead.
[Ed. note: This episode was conceived and recorded before the devastating fire at the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris on Monday. The IBISWorld Podcast Team hopes that its reconstruction is speedy and that other, less-famous places of worship facing similar tragedies might also benefit from such public interest and support.]
