5 Reasons You Shouldn’t Copy a Mega-Church
If someone asked you who you’re following in today’s church landscape, you could probably answer with a list of three to five church leaders and perhaps three to five organizations to whom you’re paying close attention.
Even if you say you don’t have a list, chances are you do.
Your list might simply consist of critics of megachurch leaders or megachurches.
We all follow someone. Especially in our hyper-connected era.
I am actually exceptionally grateful for what God is doing in many megachurches and have deep respect for many megachurch leaders. Critics who say “all megachurches are ______” in my view simply haven’t done their research.
I’m also a massive advocate of adopting best practices from anyone and anywhere (business, church, thought leaders, etc.).

And it works. Even in Canada.
So why this post then?
Because there’s a world of difference between adopting best practices and blindly copying.
Here’s the difference.
