Karl Vaters talks with Brady Shearer, summarizing a report about church trends and church size. They address what those stats mean for small church ministry, including:
- How stats don’t tell you a church’s story, but they can help you see things you might not otherwise pay attention to
- Good news about racial, age and ethnic diversity in churches over the last 20 years
Plus, Brady uses his technical skills from his work with Pro Church Tools, to help churches navigate the biggest time of change in the last 500 years, including huge recent shifts in the way social media promotes content that can be a big benefit to your church.
In the bonus chat Karl and Brady talk about Vertical Video and Cross-Platform Posting. This convo covers some of the very recent changes happening in social media and how content is promoted based on people’s likes, not their relationships.
Brady also helps us understand how to use vertical videos better, plus some very practical steps on how to post that content to all social media platforms.

It may be hard to delegate. Especially when it seems like there’s no one to delegate to. But it’s easier – and more biblical – than not delegating at all.
Small churches can use our personal touch to help new believers grow in the way that suits them best.
Curriculum doesn’t connect us to a church body. People do. People who love Jesus and show us how to love him, too.
