I am pictured here at my favorite Church, FBC in Reserve, NM where I have been serving for 7 years as of this December! Love all my friends in Reserve!
Very INTERESTING story here by Thomas S. Rainer! I would recommend signing up for his daily emails. I was introduced to his writings years ago by my mentor Pastor Leonard Navarre.
Smaller churches are poised to make a comeback.
I’m serious. I see too many signs and indicators to believe otherwise.
For certain, I know the bad news. The median size of a church has declined from around 100 to 70 in worship attendance in a decade. That means one-half of all American congregations have fewer than 70 in worship attendance.
