Six Warning Signs of Church Dropouts

Six Warning Signs of Church Dropouts –

  • Simply put, church growth equals more people coming into the church than leaving the church.
  • Taking roll in small groups helps keep members accountable and to recognize when members may be having problems.
  • Each small group or class needs someone to monitor absences and follow up with those who miss.
  • Many times, family problems embarrass church members and they end up attending less frequently or drop out altogether.
  • The single most common family issue that leads to people dropping out of church is divorce.
  • Because of what it takes to keep people in the church who have had a moral failure, many pastors choose to do nothing.

The six leading indicators that someone is about to drop out of church are:

  1. Decreased frequency in attendance
  2. No longer attending a group
  3. Decreased giving patterns
  4. Major participant in a church conflict
  5. Family problems
  6. Moral failure
