This project was an attempt to assess the causes of backsliding from a local church and to implement procedures to reclaim former members. It was the writer's intention, after researching the Bible and other literature on the subject of backsliding and the reclamation of backsliders, to find from a group of such people why they left the church and then to work with the church in designing a ministry plan to reclaim as many former members as possible.
