This thesis examines the amount of cohesion and the level of adaptability present among members of the Eastern Hills Church of Christ. Given this information, the members of the congregation were asked a single question to gauge their level of satisfaction with the church. The Eastern Hills Church of Christ is a diverse group, comprised from two churches in Athens, Texas, plus many people who have moved in from metropolitan areas. The objective of this project is to empirically test the factors of cohesion and adaptability and to use that information to find the typology of the congregation. The typological information is combined with the information concerning satisfaction in order to draw general inferences for ministry within this congregation.
