It is for persons who seek to build strong, healthy lives and strong, healthy congregations in the grace of God. It is for persons who want to reach and to grow the grassroots." _ Kennon L. Callahan, The Future That Has Come "The twenty-first century is the century of small, strong congregations.

Yes, there are mega-congregations; their number is increasing greatly; Nevertheless, across the planet, the vast majority of congregations will be small and strong, and the vast majority of people will be in these congregations." _ Kennon L.

This is a shorthand way of saying that the stronger the congregation's relational characteristics, the easier it is to raise money.
