Church Size: Leadership and Management – Tim Keller
One of the best leadership articles I have read in recent years is Tim Keller’s article on Church Size Process Management. This is a must read for every pastor serious about taking their church to the next level.
Keller writes on importance of this concept…
“One of the most common reasons for pastoral leadership mistakes and missteps is blindness to the significance of church size. Size has an enormous impact on how a church functions. There is a “size culture” that profoundly affects how decisions are made, how relationships flow, how effectiveness is evaluated, what its ministers, staff, and lay leaders do. We tend to think of the chief differences between churches mainly in denominational or theological terms, but that under-estimates the impact of size on how a church operates.”
