The vast majority of church congregations are small. In fact, 85% of churches never break the 200 attendee mark.
And yet, instead of being seen as the norm and as an incredible way to do ministry, a bigger-is-better mentality reigns in America with mega churches driving the growth culture.
Small Church BIG Deal aims to change the way pastors think about their church. It doesn't create a big versus small scenario but simply challenges pastors to see the church as God sees it:
Not according to size but according to how people are prepared for ministry; how to remain faithful and obedient to the calling regardless of church size.
Small Church BIG Deal encourages pastors to rethink size, success and significance in ministry according to different metrics. It calls for a return to looking at ministry not as a marketing or consumer challenge but as a spiritual one. Every church must be viewed as unique, important and necessary in their location. Small Church BIG Deal argues for contentment, obedience and faithfulness as the benchmarks of fruitful ministry.
