Somehow, regardless of what the church says otherwise, it seems like the message we keep getting as congregational leaders is: size matters. We know first hand that small congregations have a wealth of riches to share with the wider church and the world, though our common narrative tends to overlook these gifts. Our congregations often develop a sense of inferiority, and many clergy who minister in these communities are isolated from colleagues and a sense of teamwork, which contributes to a sense of inadequacy.
So, we’ve come together as the Small Churches Big Impact Collective to seek a different message, and to identify and amplify the beauty and grace of small. We share successes, struggles, questions, and resources. And what we’ve found is that no matter the impact you think you’re making, small churches make big impacts, with God walking right alongside us.
