Is Bigger Really Better? The Statistics actually Say “No”!

This is interesting. I wonder if bigger churches have a "come see" attitude rather then a "go tell"  attitude...: Is Bigger Really Better? The Statistics actually Say “No”! |
A global survey conducted by Christian Schwartz found that smaller churches consistently scored higher than large churches in seven out of eight qualitative characteristics of a healthy church. A more recent study of churches in America, conducted by Ed Stetzer and Life Way Ministries, revealed that churches of two hundred or less are four times more likely to plant a daughter church than churches of one thousand or more. The research seems to even indicate that the pattern continues—the smaller the size of the church the more fertile they are in planting churches.
