Size Transitions in Congregations

Harvesting the Learnings Series
  • By Ingram Book
Product Description
Congregations that seek growth are often frustrated at hitting a plateau-caught in a transition zone between sizes.  The Alban Institute has long been recognized as a leader in size transition research and learning, and this anthology offers an in-depth collection of resources, through new articles developed for the book as well as previously published and highly regarded pieces that inform and provoke.

In a new essay, Arlin Rothauge, director of the Seabury Institute and author of Sizing Up a Congregation for New Member Ministry, a classic on the subject, offers his reflections on the state of the research and the models that have been used to frame discussion about size transitions.  Alban senior consultant Alice Mann describes key finds from their current research on the pastoral-to-program size transition, perhaps the most common and most difficult to address.  Other new material focuses on size transition in synagogues; the program-to-corporate transition; and the "awkward size" congregation with the resources of a pastor-centered congregation, but the desire to be program size.
