Small Churches Are the Next Big Thing—With One Condition

If Small Churches can provide opportunities for genuine relationships with God and each other, in a healthy church, with practical ministry to the surrounding community, we can be the vanguard of a new church movement. But it really won’t be a new movement. It will be the oldest one of all.

The main reason I’m convinced Small Churches will be the next big thing is because they’ve always been a big thing. Since the day of Pentecost, innovative Small Churches have been the way the majority of Christians have done church. They’ve just stayed under the radar for 2,000 years.

Now may be their turn to come out of the shadows.

It’s about time.

So what do you think? Are Small Churches the next big thing? What can we do to be ready for the Millennials?
