Developing a Membership and Assimilation Process for Summerlin Community Baptist Church, Las Vegas, Nevada
MetadataShow full item record
One of the cultural traits of the twenty-first century America is mobility. For various reasons of work, retirement, or military service, people are on the move. Las Vegas is no exception to this rule. What was a boomtown in Las Vegas from the 1980s to the early twenty-first century came crashing to a halt. Various churches across denominational lines lost 30 percent of their congregants and finances. As Las Vegas continues its slow climb out of the economic downturn, churches have to learn how to adapt and make first-time guests long-term members. It is with this cultural context in mind that this project has been developed.
