This paper presents a study which purpose was to discover what former members perceive as the principal reasons for discontinuing membership in selected Seventh-day Adventist churches in Michigan. Another purpose was to establish the major factors that contribute to the loss of faith and dissociation from the church and to learn what interrelationships were significant in their decision to leave the church. The descriptive method was used, based on in-depth interviews.
