Comparing small churches to megachurches is like comparing peas to pumpkins, or roses to redwoods. Each has a purpose, but those purposes are too different to determine a relative value.
. . .
Instead of comparing roses to redwoods, I’d like to propose a way to compare apples to apples without participating in the “who’s better?” game.
How about these two questions, side-by-side:
What are the benefits of 10,000 people worshiping in a megachurch led by one pastor?
What are the benefits of 10,000 people worshiping in 100 small churches led by 100 pastors?
Now that’s apples to apples.
