Entrepreneurial evangelicals have carved out a foothold in the region though the future is less certain. They use the aesthetics of the popular culture; create networks of small groups; nurture entrepreneurial leaders; appeal to young families; offer alternative forms of religiously‐based activities; provide a core conservative theology that puts forward religious and moral absolutes that attract and maintain vital subcultures in suburban, and in urban settings. With less numerical success, liberal congregations create vital congregations that embody a progressive liberal theology; mixing traditional liturgy and active social justice programs; facilitating adult education and worship experiences that allow for informal communities; and, with effort — shown by several congregations in this study — integrate a worship design that appeals to families and children.
