Jeff and Jonny are back with Karl Vaters from NewSmallChurch.com! The guys talk with Karl about the ninth in his twelve blog series call "The Essentials." They discuss the post titled "Grow it or Close it? Is there a third option for struggling small churches?"
Is there something inherently wrong with being a small church? Should all small churches rightly be on the path to being bigger churches? If your church is not growing, is it not pleasing to God? If you can't grow your church numerically, are you a failed pastor leading a failed congregation?
Hopefully, after you've listened to the guys talk with Karl "The Shark" Vaters, you'll feel more comfortable dealing with these questions for yourself and your church. 200churches.com and NewSmallChurch.com is all about encouragement for pastors of small churches. Encouragement for YOU!
We are certain you will enjoy this episode, and walk away with a new or renewed understanding of what God expects from your church, and from you as a pastor.
Next week's episode, #108, is a part two to this one, when Jonny and Jeff take a deep dive and talk about the very issue that this episode deals with - don't miss it next week on the 200churches Podcast! Every Wednesday, a new episode. That's every Wednesday!
