METHODOLOGY
  • Following the multi-denominational study for
    church planting survivability and health, further
    surveying and analysis of other denominations was
    requested. The goal of this over sampling was to
    learn what particular denominations are doing
    well among their church planting systems
  • Over 100 factors for higher attendance and
    baptism were tested. Complete list of
    statistically significant factors by denomination
    in Appendix B
  • Statistically significant factors were grouped
    together to form best practices for church
    planting by denomination. In most cases, these
    best practices are unique to the particular
    denomination.
