Many surveys have shown that the single most effective factor in keeping a child faithful to the Christian Faith throughout their life is for a single adult Christian to intentionally show an interest in their spiritual development and intentionally disciple them. it was not the size of the church, the curriculum or even the devotedness of parents that kept kids in the Church according to these studies – but a non-related adult who spent time with them discussing spiritual thing.

In their book Simple Church, Thom Rainer and Eric Geiger write, “Churches with a simple process for reaching and maturing people are expanding the kingdom. Church leaders who have designed a simple biblical process to make disciples are effectively advancing the movement of the gospel. Simple churches are making a big impact. Conversely, complex churches are struggling and anemic. Churches without a process or with a complicated process for making disciples are floundering.” Simple Church: Returning to God’s Process for Making Disciples by Thom S. Rainer and Eric Geiger.
