Large, Wealthy Congregations and Their Judicatories

In this essay, church researcher Loren Mead distinguishes between large congregations and wealthy congregations, noting that large is a contextual term, depending upon the churchs denomination, and wealthy churches are not those with significant resources, but those whose resources are significantly above their budgetary needs. He then discusses the ways these congregations exercise power within their regional associations.
