Our culture's infatuation with bigness--bigger cars, bigger houses, bigger businesses--has infiltrated the church. But smaller doesn't equal second-rate, and bigger isn't better.
Leadership Journal editor and former pastor Brandon O'Brien in Stategically Small Churches shows how small churches are uniquely equipped for success in today's culture. O'Brien celebrates churches that are taking full advantage of their small size and analyzes how other churches can learn from their strategies.
For example, strategically small churches: facilitate a higher level of commitment from laypeople focus attention on fewer programs, increasing effectiveness nurture close relationships across age and life-experience barriers But perhaps most important, O'Brien asks churches to rethink what it means to be successful. Sometimes small is just right.
