The Small Church Project


Some churches have no pastor; some no church building; some have fewer than 10 members; one closed formally only to rise again as a house church. But each is alive and well, living the Gospel. Join us to hear stories that bear lessons for churches of all sizes, small and large; and in all settings – urban, suburban, rural – to consider: “What is your church’s story now”?
