Church Growth
If Your Church Is Healthy, Why Is It Still Small?
It's a valid question. I wish I had a tidy answer. But here's what I do know.

Being The Best Church We Can Be

We're going to keep doing good kingdom work. Worshipping, praying, preaching, teaching, equipping the saints, reaching the lost, feeding the poor, and learning how to do all of those things better every single day.

Even if our church never becomes big, we're going to be the best church we can be.

Even if our church never becomes big, we're going to be the best church we can be.

And I’ll keep reaching out to my fellow small churches and their pastors so we can encourage, inspire and equip each other to do church better today than we did yesterday.

For now, that will have to be enough. And, you know what? It’s more than enough. It’s great!

A strong, passionate, healthy, missional, worshipful, disciple-making church is a wonder to behold. Whether we have 20, 200 or 2,000 people in the room.

So yes, we’re still hoping to grow. But we’re not worried about it.

And we won’t sit idly by waiting for it either.

We’ve got a role to play in the body of Christ and a passion to do it. So size is no obstacle.
