Too many small church pastors are doing most, or all, of their ministry alone.
Most wonder if anyone outside the church even knows or cares that they exist. That isolation can become toxic. And it can start to bleed out into their congregations, confirming the worst stereotypes about why small churches remain small.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. If we took just a little time and energy to reach out, we could help reverse this trend.
