Gallup research has shown that engaged members
- are more than 10 times as likely to invite someone to participate in their congregation,
- are nearly three times as likely to say they are extremely satisfied with their lives,
- spend more than two hours per week serving and helping others in their communities, and
- give up to three times more to their faith communities annually.
Assessing, addressing, and improving members’ engagement reaps rewards. Engagement drives spiritual commitment, which impacts particular behavioral outcomes. When strategically addressed, increased engagement translates to positive impact inside and outside the local faith community.
