Podcast Episode #047

In a recent post, I listed seven reasons very active church members drop out. These aren’t your casual members. These are the ones that are there in a leadership role or a serving capacity on a regular basis. We discuss the seven reasons they may drop out and provide ways for churches to keep these members involved when they show signs of leaving.

  1. Moral failure.
  2. Dropping out of a group.
  3. Burnout.
  4. Traumatic event. 
  5. Dropping out of a ministry.
  6. Major interpersonal conflict.
  7. Gradual withdrawal.
