I support small churches, not because numbers don’t matter, but because they do. I’m not settling for less, I’m striving for greater. More people are led to Jesus, discipled and sent into ministry from small churches than by any other means.
In most of the world, church growth means the planting and nurturing of small churches, not the building of bigger ones.
Given these facts, it’s a mystery as to why we talk so much about building bigger churches, but we have so little teaching, support and resources dedicated to doing small church well.
