Small Church. Big Challenges


Last night I was working on my notes and power point presentation for the February Church Solutions Conference in Phoenix.

I had been asked to do a workshop specifically for small churches. I was honored to do so, but then realized that the challenge was bigger than I first thought. While most of the churches in our country have fewer than 200 people, I do not simply want to give those pastors who will attend the same things they have heard over and over.

I then had this thought: I should get some advice and feedback from the “Transforming Church Community”. In other words- Can you help me as I prepare? I would love to hear your thoughts on the following questions:

1. What are the top 3-5 challenges that small churches face?
2. What is the single most significant thing a small church can be about?
3. If you were giving this workshop, what is the one thing you would want these pastors to know?
4. If you are a small church pastor, what would you most like to learn about? Or what would be the most beneficial?
5. What is the most innovative idea you have seen in a small church.

Please do not feel like you have to answer all of these questions. Any insight you have would be great. Thanks for your help.
