MASONDO, Sibusiso. The growth model for managing change in African Christianity: The case of the Reformed Presbyterian Church in a Cape Town township. Studia Hist. Ecc. [online]. 2014, vol.40, n.2, pp.189-206. ISSN 2412-4265.

The article defines conversion as a process of change management. The Reformed Presbyterian Church exhibits a growth model which is about organic growth and development whereby new members are mostly recruited among the children of members. Children are groomed from baptism through Sunday school and confirmation classes to membership in full communion. For them conversion is a process of growth and development in which they keep on learning all the time about their faith and who they are.
