D.
It underlined part need to be modifier clause rather than modifier phrase.
E is out "increasing the population" seems awkward.

Agree B.

use of 'rather than' is best suited here. E is wrong in saying 'increasing'. So we are left with B.

'is from' is not idiomatic -> D and E are out
'instead of' is not appropriate -> C is out
B is the best choice for parallellism -> conversions rather than increases

B by POE

but is the following a complete sentence?

;church membership is expanding by 6.6 percent a year, fully two-thirds of the growth coming from conversions rather than increases in the population

the bold part is a grammatically correct sentence but what about the complete sentence after ; ?

The part after ";" talks about the "expanding of church membership". That's correctly used.
