Why Don’t Small Churches Grow? (Actually, They Do)

Dennis Camplin recently sent me a link to Karl Vaters’ article, « Why Don’t Small Churches Grow? (Actually, They Do), » and I thought it would be a good Church Health share.

« The presumption that small churches don’t grow is false.  Small churches do grow. Some grow numerically. Most grow spiritually. Many grow in both ways.  It’s just that when they grow numerically, we don’t call them small churches any more. We call them medium, big or megachurches. »
