One interesting tidbit: there is a strong correlation between the use of two kinds of electronic technology and church growth: Web sites and electric guitars/basses. There is also a strong correlation between church growth and the willingness of a congregation to embrace change. This is a correlation that Monte found in a denominational study from the FACT 2000 data, so it is interesting that this same factor is showing up in the interfaith sample in 2005. That seems to be a strong characteristic.
