Blogging 202

Today is a day we mourn the loss of TWIG (This Week In Geek). We will remember you fondly. After mourning the loss Matt and Rob square off on ministry blogging, numbers, community building, teaching, and all kinds of theory behind blogs.

After digging into the theory, we dive into blogging 202. We add pictures, ourselves, our lives, and some good writing habits to our blogs. So, please comes join us for the Geeks and God podcast.

Mega Churches

I agree with Rob about Mega Churches. If a large church would spread out into multiple churches, it could not only cover a greater geographic area and thus target more people, but it also prevents people from slipping through the cracks. This is probably my bias as a pastor of a church of ~200, but it's a lot easier to know what's going on in peoples' lives and reaching our "inactive" members when that number is much smaller.

IOW, a bunch of smaller churches can reach a whole lot more people, just looking at numbers, than a big megachurch.

size not the first priority


While you might be right I don't think this is the first thing that churches need to concentrate on. I don't think that, at this time, size matters. A greater priority would be to direct the attitude at churches both large and small toward outreach with their congegrations on a daily and lifestyle basis.
