If you are a regular reader of our blog, and listener to our podcast, then you know that every Wednesday we generally have one topic that we cover. Today, though, we broadened our scope a bit and wanted to talk to you about the heart of 200churches and our vision for how we can help pastors and leaders of small churches, especially those who are isolated and in need of community.
Recently, we connected with Jim Powell from the 95 Network and talked with him about his passion for leaders of small churches. We both agreed that as we encourage pastors, we did not want to affirm small churches simply because they're small churches. In other words, we don't want to celebrate smallness for the sake of smallness, but rather encourage pastors who are in small churches doing big things.
We believe that God accomplishes amazing Kingdom things through small churches and small church leaders. We want to encourage and affirm leaders who are in those situations while also challenging pastors and leaders who may be hiding out in small churches because they believe it gives them an opportunity to hide from challenges and just coast.
Our vision at 200churches is to encourage and inspire pastors and leaders to live up to their fullest potential! We want you to feel uplifted and supported by our ministry and we're always happy to hear from you and connect with you.
One of our long term goals is to create a network of pastors that can be a community for one another. Isolated pastors can fall prey to so many struggles. God never intended for men and women to do this job alone!
A few months ago we talked to Ryan Perz about the upsides and challenges of being a solo pastor. The issues he talked about -- ranging from being a self-manager to difficulties finding genuine community -- are issues that every solo pastor faces, and issues we want to help you through here at 200churches. As always, feel free to send us an email or voicemail. We'd love to get to know you better!
