What would the world look like if all the megachurches disappeared tomorrow? Would it be a better place? Or worse?
I propose it would be worse.
But, by the way some of my fellow small church pastors talk (and the way I used to talk), you’d think that if all the megachurches disappeared tomorrow, suddenly all the small churches nearby would be filled to the brim with the people the megachurches stole from us over the years.
I don’t think that’s the case. The church I pastor is small for a variety of reasons, some of which I don’t understand, but not because there are megachurches near us.
