So much of what’s taught about church methods and structures comes from a corporate mindset.
That’s to be expected when most church leadership writers are coming from a large- and megachurch background.
But smaller churches don’t operate that way. And they shouldn’t. Because small churches are more like families than corporations. And their pastors are more like parents or older siblings than CEOs.
But operating a small church like a family doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t do it well.
