We need to understand why a church is small before we can know if its size is a problem to overcome or an opportunity to capitalize on.
Is it small because something is broken or stuck, causing it to stall out when it should be scalable? If so, good stewardship demands that those problems be addressed and fixed.
Or is your church small because it excels in the kind of ministry that happens best in small batches? Maybe you’re ministering to people who feel overwhelmed when the crowd gets big. If so, good stewardship demands that you dump the guilt and reignite your passion for farm-to-table faith.
