Five Year Growth RateEdit

Red line shows five year growth rate. A five year growth rate between 10% and -10% is considered stable; greater than 10% indicates a growing congregation; one below -10% indicates a church in decline. This makes no allowance for daughter churches. Extreme growth rate volatility seem very common in small churches, especially unorganized ones.
