the only way to get big

THE ONLY WAY TO GET BIG IS TO STAY SMALL.

Alright, I might have confused you with that statement so let me explain.

– the only way for the church to grow is to build an authentic community.
– the only way for the church to grow is to create an atmosphere of family
– the only way for the church to grow is to empower tribes within.
– the only way for the church to grow is for the pastor to develop key leaders who will share the load.

Look at the pattern Jesus set.

– the more the crowds grew the more time he spent with His disciples.
– the more the disciples grew the more He spent time with Peter, James and John
