Full Title
Selected case studies in how to move Rhea’s Mill Baptist Church from plateaued to growing
Abstract
Rhea’s Mill Baptist Church is in the expanding community of Prosper, Texas. Though the community is growing, the church is not. The purpose of this dissertation was to understand why the church’s growth has plateaued. The hypothesis was: as Rhea’s Mill Baptist Church gives attention to issues associated with space, small groups, and focus, the church will move from plateaued to growing.
The body of this dissertation is divided into three parts. It begins with a review of relevant literature concerning issues of space, small groups, and focus as they relate to church growth. This is followed by an explanation of why qualitative case study research was used to evaluate two churches that successfully moved from plateaued to growing. The case-studies demonstrated that there is a link between giving attention to issues associated with space, small groups, and focus and a church successfully moving from plateaued to growing.
The dissertation concludes with applications that will aid in helping Rhea’s Mill Church move from its current plateau to growing once again.
