Shut the Back Door! An Excerpt from Rev. Riggs

The Backdoor of the Church is different from all the other thresholds that let people in as
participating members of the Church fellowship. Instead, the Backdoor of the Church is where
people quietly leave the Church. A business person might call the Backdoor “attrition,” or a
church consultant might term it the stickiness of the Church. Whichever, the Backdoor is
something the Church has not paid enough attention. Click to read this excerpt from Rev. Riggs as a part of his Reflections Series.
