There are a lot of misunderstandings about small churches and the people who pastor them.
- That we’re a problem to be fixed
- That we can only do good ministry when we hit a certain critical mass
- and so on
But, without question, the biggest misunderstanding about small churches and the people who pastor them is this:
Too many people (especially fellow pastors) think that small church pastors aren’t interested in church growth. That we’ve given up on reaching new people. That we’ve decided to stay small out of fear, comfort, lack of passion or something equally petty.
