In any church, the people will be used to better the program instead of being taught to better their relationship with God. The book states, “We see people not as cogs in our wheel, or as resources for our projects, but as individuals each at their own stage of the gospel growth. Our goal for each person is that they advance, that they make progress, that the move one step forward form where they are now.” This should be the purpose and the plan for every church in America. The plan to treat the members of the congregation as individuals and by treating them as individuals, they will learn to work for the whole. A key strength to church growth and church revitalization is understanding if a congregation is to grow numerically, more work will need to be put into the trellis or the support of the church.

The setting of Hughes struggles took place in a religious ceremony in his Auntie Reed’s church. In this service, many young children like Hughes were gathered to be spiritually cleansed by the light of Jesus. Before the start of the service, Auntie Reed, and many church elders told Hughes that when Jesus spiritually exposes himself, he
