I just finished writing “A Tour of Small Churches in America” article for Outreach magazine. I’m not sure that will be the final title, but in the article I sketch 7 types of small churches, and other writers are profiling a specific church in each category.
The seven categories of small churches we cover include:
- Traditional small churches;
- Marketplace churches;
- Lifestyle churches;
- Ethnic or immigrant churches;
- Multicultural churches;
- New church starts;
- Intentionally-small churches.
I can’t give away all the goodies in the piece, but trust me, there are some. Plus, I haven’t even seen the real-life profiles of specific examples of each kind of small church. Actually, we could have included a few more types of small churches such as neomonastic, liturgical, and mission-driven. Maybe we’ll save those for another day and another article.
All of these articles, and more good stuff, will be in the annual small church issue coming out in July/August. You just have time to subscribe to Outreach magazine so that you won’t miss this big, small church edition. Now back to our regular programming.
