Creative Explanations for Dwindling Attendance
Back in the Glory Days, Basic Seminars were attended by crowds of 20,000+ people. In recent years, the average seminar size is about 300. Alarmed by the plummeting attendance of Basic and Advanced seminars, IBLP staff compiled a list for Mr. Gothard of probable explanations for the attendance drop.
1. People are rejecting the truth in this wicked and fallen age.
2. The Local Church is too much competition.
3. You need some new ties.
4. Not enough singing.
5. Overhead projector bad/PowerPoint good.
