Mega churches are great when it comes to outreach, but drawing a crowd isn’t what a pastor is called to do. Smaller gatherings is where disciples are made and souls are brought to Christ. Any executive can lead a mega church, but only a pastor can lead a small gathering of souls.
Hundreds in our world are really wanting to grow their faith in the Lord, but have already ruled-out the traditional church as the means to do that. For what ever reason, right or wrong, good or bad, they need a bridge to do that and your willingness to launch a simple church ministry may be just the thing to impact a handful of people for the Great Commission!
If Jesus would have died on Calvary’s cross for only one soul, why should we think church ministry is all about building bigger congregants? A bigger church, does not necessarily mean a bigger group of people are going to heaven. Jesus said the greatest prophet was John the Baptist – not exactly a mega-church pastor.
The beauty of a simple church is it is about winning one, not the multitude. It’s about the individual, not the crowd. It’s about biblical pastoral care, not a paycheck-backed pulpit or organizational budgets.
