Product Description

On any given Sunday, fewer than one-third of the members in many churches attend worship. That's because churches tend to concentrate on recruitment instead of retention. Now, with results from a research project including more than 300 churches, Dr. Thom S. Rainer proves that the congregations that spend time keeping their members involved, challenged, and informed are the ones that thrive. Most of all, successful churches expect more of their membership. And members rise to the challenge, participating more fully and more often. High Expectations offers specific proven steps for keeping members' interest as its peak, including:
  • New Members Classes
  • A Focus on Giving and Tithing
  • Mission Statements
  • Expository Preaching
  • Active Sunday School
  • Vital Youth Ministry
  • Pastoral Tenure and Stability

    This review was written for High Expectations.
    Based on research this book truly proves how to close the back door via the front door. It challenges some contemporary thinking and myths with research that demonstrates what real success is today. Not a method but a mentality. Not seeker friendly but spirit focused.

    This review was written for High Expectations.
    Rainer here addresses the problem all too often found in American churches: losses through the "back door." Many books can be found on how to attract newcomers to a congregation, but what is the key to keeping them? The author answers this question with solid research and Biblical values. In a nutshell, Rainer's research reveals that the secret to keeping members is expecting more of them. Other insights from his research are presented here as well, but the focus of the book is powerful effect of "raising the bar." This title is a keeper for my pastoral library.

    A worthy companion to Rainer's earlier work, Effective Evangelistic Churches. This volume surveys the churches most effective in assimilating and retaining membership. A must have for the church growth library.
