Churches, as not-for-profit organizations (NPOs) experience strategic and structural changes. Christians in many parts of the world depend on churches for their spiritual upliftment. Qualitative research in the form of semi-structured interviews was carried out. The research was conducted within the Gauteng Province of South Africa. A total of 26 church managers responses were recorded and analyzed. Data were analyzed using the Atlas.ti software. Both the agency and management theories as well as PESTEL model formed part of this exploratory research. The findings indicate that churches are confronted with strategic changes that may threaten their sustainability
