Helps Small Churches Maximize Their Unique Assets


^^Brandon O'Brien helps pastors and church leaders understand that a smaller church is sometimes better than a big one. He demonstrates the strengths of small congregations, including that today's church "shoppers" want services that are local, personal, and intimate. Also, small churches provide space to nurture close relationships across age and lifestyle barriers, and they facilitate a higher level of commitment from laypeople. And small church budgets are often more effective because of greater efficiency. The Strategically Small Church will encourage small-church pastors in their ministries and challenge them to play to their strengths. ^^

Blessed Are the Small Our culture's infatuation with bigness--bigger cars, bigger houses, bigger businesses--has infiltrated the church. But smaller doesn't equal second-rate. Leadership Journal editor and former pastor Brandon O'Brien shows how small churches are uniquely equipped for success in today's culture. O'Brien celebrates churches that are taking full advantage of their small size and analyzes how other churches can learn from their strategies. For example, strategically small churches: facilitate a higher level of commitment from laypeople focus attention on fewer programs, increasing effectiveness nurture close relationships across age and life-experience barriers But perhaps most important, O'Brien asks churches to rethink what it means to be successful. Sometimes small is just right. "Kudos to Brandon O'Brien for reshaping the small-church brand. Using real-life examples of 'small' as an intentional ministry strategy, O'Brien gives hope to small churches everywhere. A must-read for church leaders!" Chuck Warnock, Author of Confessions of a Small-Church Pastor "Every page paints a picture of the strategic potential for kingdom ministry that flows from smaller churches." Kara E. Powell, PhD, Executive Director, Fuller Youth Institute Fuller Theological Seminary
