Most People Worship in Small Churches

Most of the churches on the NCFIC network of churches are small churches… I was struck by this reality nationwide through Karl Vaters, in his article, “3 Assumptions & 5 Realities About Why So Many Churches are Small.”  He notes,

 “Ninety percent of churches have fewer than 200 people. Eighty percent have under 100. Small churches are not in the minority. We are the overwhelmingly dominant way people have always chosen to worship Jesus. […] The nature of Church lends itself to smallness. […] Big- and megachurches are a gift to the body of Christ. But they have been, and always will be outliers in church life, not the norm. Bigness is the exception, not the rule.
