Carey Nieuwhof is a name that is rising fast in the Christian blogosphere.
Seven years ago, Carey founded the fast-growing, multi-site Connexus Church (about 1,500 people) in the small city of Barrie, Ontario, Canada (population 128,000).
His primary blogging topic? Church growth.
I, on the other hand, have been pastoring Cornerstone Christian Fellowship (about 200 people) for 22 years in Orange County, California (population 3.1 million).
My primary blogging topic? Small Churches.
We were bound to butt heads, right?
If all you knew about us were the mini-bios I just gave you, it would be obvious where that butting of heads would take place. He should see me as a sad underachiever who needed his condescending help, while I would be looking at him with jealousy and/or ridicule for putting numbers first.
