Experts: Big-church solutions don't solve small-church problems
from Baptist News Global
A few years back, Dennis Atwood was having a heck of a time getting his hands on a discipleship curriculum designed for small or even mid-sized congregations. Most of what he found was tailored to churches much larger than the one of which he is pastor, First Baptist Church in Mount Olive, North Carolina. “Either it was too in-depth and complex or too surface and simple,” Atwood said. So he took matters into his own hands. “I did my own curriculum and turned it into a book.” While small-church ministers don’t need to write books to instruct their congregations, Atwood and others say a willingness to innovate is a must in a religious culture dominated by mega- and other large churches.
