CHURCH GROWTH FACTOIDS

CHURCH GROWTH FACTOIDS:

Take a look at these two Factoids

 

Factoid #1: “…new Christians who immediately became active in a small group are five times more likely to remain in the church five years later than those who were active in worship services alone.” Source: (Rainer, Thom. Surprising Insights from the Unchurched and Proven Ways to Reach Them. (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2001), p.120.)


Factoid #2: “…Without cutting the competition so severely, there is no way we could have reached an 80 percent participation rate in our small group program. And without keeping things trimmed back, we wouldn't have been able to sustain it, either.” Source: (Larry Osborn, in "Sticky Church" (2008: Zondervan), p. 94.)

These and other Factoids can be found at ChurchGrowth Factoids
