Gone are the days when Denomination was the biggest factor in deciding programming and church culture. Now “The difference between how churches of 100 and 1,000 function may be much greater than the difference between a Presbyterian and a Baptist church of the same size” says Author Tim Keller.
Why This Story Matters For Church Leaders: Most churches aren’t mega and struggle with budgets, programming and volunteers. They can work with other churches of similar size to learn and grow together.
- Focus On The Positive- There are positives to almost every church size, larger churches have more to offer while smaller churches have a more intimate feel.
- Grow By Giving- The most effectively way to get new people into your church is to serve your community outside of it.
- Don’t Be Cliquey- Be sure that when new people enter your doors, that you are authentic, welcoming and genuinely interested in who they are.
What do you love about your church’s size? What do you do well?
