METHODOLOGY

  • A sample of 2266 church plants were selected among 12 denominations or church planting networks of which 2080 were determined to still exist or not.
  • Church plants who received denominational funding between 2000 and 2005 were included in the sample.
  • Over 1000 church plants were contacted by phone to determine their survival, of which 500 completed the telephone survey
  • Among Southern Baptists, we attempted to contact all Nehemiah church planters appointed since 2000.
  • Over 100 factors were tested for higher attendance and baptisms as well as church plant survivability.
