It would be interesting to see the list of reasons for all the offshoot churches - probably many tied to small, personal differences in leadership style for these already tiny congregations.
That's very much the case in my area. Members of a congregation get angry at each other and instead of working on their differences, one (sometimes more) group will split off and build/start a new church. There are several offshoots of the church my dad was a part of all his life, and other ones have offshoots too. I imagine by now even the offshoots have offshoots.

This is going on with independent Protestant churches in my area also, they're proliferating like crazy.

This is a map of membership in religious congregations, not a map of all those who have religious or spiritual belief. Many people who are not members of religious congregations have religious or spiritual beliefs.
