In 1987, the Nebraska Conference of the United Methodist Church began an ambitious process aimed at reversing its two decade membership decline. Contracting with Church Growth, Inc., headed by Dr. Win Am, the conference's newly created Church Growth Committee introduced to its 432 congregations in the state an enterprise labeled "Daring a New Harvest." The plan consisted of an introductory Basic Growth Seminar, followed by a three-and-a-half year process called Love in Action (LIA).
