The phrase “bigger is better” does not always apply, especially when it comes to the church. Just because a congregation is small does not mean it cannot make a big impact.
In fact, many times, the small churches have the biggest impact due to their close-knit community and focus on relationships. Often, these churches are the ones that survive the test of time. This is because they are the ones that are rooted in the community and are not afraid to get involved.
Being small is not a problem. The problem is how you can use your size to be as impactful as possible. How do you create an influence that is greater than your size?
In this episode, we'll give you a peek into the life of a healthy small church in Orange County, California. They are not your typical small church, but they do things uniquely and wonderfully. Their pastor, Karl Vaters, will give us insight into how they are able to make a big impact in the lives of their people and the community.
“My question is if your church disappeared tomorrow, would a segment of your community miss you? There ought to be somebody you're impacting to the degree that they'd miss you if you disappeared. My first piece of advice on that to small church pastors is we have to impact our community.”
If you're looking for a glimpse into a healthy, thriving church, then this is the episode for you!
