The article discusses:

  • How can small-membership churches move toward maximum effectiveness?
  • Taking actions necessary to move past the three classic membership-plateaus.
  • Fine-tune the worship service toward a format, style, and hymn selection that shows equal respect for the spiritual preferences of all four adult generations.
  • Emphasize concern for children through community service ministries.
  • Remove ministry inhibiting barriers in the church buildings.
  • Increase the percentage of attendees who pray daily.
