Why do people leave churches?
from Associated Baptist Press
From Nov. 5, 2010:
Many churches and denominations put a lot of effort into attracting new members only to lose many of them through a “back door” -- a term used to describe people who regularly attended a church in the past but stopped. “Churches have gone to great extreme effort to get people in the front door of the church,” Brad Waggoner of LifeWay Christian Resources said in a 2006 podcast. “There’s been some success numerically in that strategy, but very few people are talking about the back door of the church. That is: ‘Where do the people go that slip out of the life of the church?’ The back door is just as important as the front door in determining the health of a local church.”
