Eighty percent of all Protestant churches in America have memberships of 125 or less. Nearly 25% of all Protestant churches have a weekly attendance of 35 or less. Therefore among Protestant churches in America small congregations make up the largest block. In light of these facts it is difficult to understand why small churches are treated as the exception rather than the rule. New Testament churches were often small yet God powerfully used them. Your church may not have big budgets, elaborate programs, multiple staff members, or big numbers, but the Lord can use it too. Small churches have loving pastors, a deep desire to be faithful to God's Word, a commitment to discipleship, and a heart for serving the community. Small Does Not Mean Struggling isn't about growing your church from miniature to marvelous. It is about serving the Lord in the small church. As you open its pages, you'll find a collection of stories and essays written from a small church pastor's perspective. Embedded in the stories, you'll find hope, humor, and honesty.
