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

Publisher's Description

For over a quarter of a century the problem of losing church members has progressively increased. Today the situation is so bad that less than one-third of the members in some churches attend worship services. Church leaders are crying for help. In an effort to help church leaders, the Billy Graham School of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary conducted a massive research project involving nearly 287 churches. The most revealing aspect of the study was that the higher expectations placed on members, the greater the likelihood that the members would stay and be involved with the church. Using the data gathered from this project, Thom Rainer presents the first-ever comprehensive study about 'closing the back door.' Rainer looks at why people are leaving the church and how church leaders can keep the members.
