Restaurant experts know that telling a hard-working, exhausted restaurant owner to build a bigger restaurant is not a wise or helpful strategy.
Church leaders need to figure that out, too. Instead of telling hard-working, exhausted pastors of struggling congregations to build bigger churches, let’s help them build healthy Small Churches.
This is the second of a two-part post in which I look at 7 great turnaround ideas from the hosts of Restaurant: Impossible and Kitchen Nightmares, and their surprising Small Church parallels.
All 7 ideas center on a simple principle: Bigger fixes nothing.
In Part 1, we saw three ideas:

2. Cook fresh and local
3. Ask for help
Now, in Part 2, we’ll look at the final four ideas.
