Leadership

Does Size Matter? (Part 4)

I love small businesses. I bought my only television from a local, small business. They delivered it, set it up, and called a week later to see how I liked it. Great service.

I decided to get a second television so I could watch football while my kids watched whatever reality show they watch. So I went back to the small business. The sales guy remembered me and showed me four different televisions that might work. He quoted me a price. I decided to compare prices and went to a mega-store. The salesman showed me probably 40 different options, all priced considerably less than the smaller store. My heart was with the small business.

But I bought from the big business.

Why? They had more options and better prices.

This certainly isn’t the only or best means of doing ministry, but we have found it effective to minister to those God has sent and reach more along with way.

What we've learned:

There is no “right” option, but there are best practices for ensuring your church can thrive in the vision God has give to you. Pursue the vision for your church.
