This dissertation presents a strategy to strengthen member engagement by promoting inclusive practices among Adventist churches in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area in the face of church disengagement. Literature was reviewed. Surveys, interviews and focus groups were conducted. This study recommended an “each-church-as-a-village” strategy in which members seek to foster more inclusive engagement by practicing acceptance, adaptation, and association.
