With the possibilities for small church budgeting being so flexible, are there guidelines that are universal? I believe so. Here are nine of them.
Church & Culture
Outside-the-walls ministry is not always well-represented in the budget of a smaller church, even when they’re doing a lot of it.
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.
Leaving a church is hard. Don’t make it harder by doing it badly.
Small churches are great, but not everyone needs to be invested in the debate over church size.
Every church should have a baseline of quality that people can rely on. And small churches are no exception.
It’s quite possible – and horribly tragic – for people to agree with your list of sins and still not have a relationship with Jesus.
