The growth of the EPC slowed down, down,
That's because EPC are too conservative for most of the folks left in the PCUSA. Churches leaving now are pretty much single issue. They'll put up with just about anything else.
EPC had a shorter window of rapid growth than did the PCA. They are now going to have to grow organically. Maybe we can send them a few PCA congregations to help.
I know I say this each time this is brought up, but I do not think most confessional Reformed people understand how theologically liberal (and ignorant) the conservatives in the PC(USA) are.
The way I see it is this - if "gay marriage" was the straw that broke the camel's back for your church to leave the PCUSA, then your local church is either ignorant theologically, or hasn't been paying attention. Either way it is unlikely to be attracted to Confessional Presbyterianism.
