In this episode I interview Erik Reed, a pastor in Nashville TN.
This conversation is, surprisingly, based on a Twitter thread Erik wrote about how excellence in smaller churches looks different than it does in bigger churches.
Erik and I talk about:
- The dangers of small churches trying to imitate larger churches
- The attractiveness of authenticity
- The importance of investing our time and resources wisely
- Examples of what small-church excellence actually looks like
Instead of pushing for the technical “wow” factor, we need to remember that people who come to a smaller church are looking for us to do the small, relational things well, so that’s where we should put our energy.
