About a week ago both Mark Stevens (see here) and Robert Jimenez (see here) wrote post on this blog discussing the danger of a church congregations growing too large. As I read these posts, and the various comments, I couldn’t help but ask myself what the next step would be for a church that has grown “too big”. What does a church do?
Does it go to multiple services? If so, how does that avoid becoming mega-church-esque? Do they go to multiple services while assigning different pastors to each service? Do they plant an independent satellite?
What do you think a church should do to make sure that people are pastored? What should a church do that thinks it has grown too large? How does this impact evangelistic efforts?
