Small churches are not usually a pastor's dream. The fewer the number of people in attendance on a Sunday morning, the more the question persists--why? While books dealing with church growth provide strategies to increase membership, they do not focus upon the root cause of why congregations lose members. They also do not answer the question: Why do some churches remain small?
Avoiding A Small Church Mentality answers both of these questions in a manner that is sensitive to the unique needs and challenges of the small church pastor. This book is designed for all pastors and church leaders who want to see their congregations grow numerically, as well as in spiritual maturity. It is also ideal for use in Bible college and seminary classrooms as a new generation of Christian leaders prepare for service in God's Kingdom.
