Strategies to Interest Large Churches in Assisting Small Churches

Most often, pastors of large congregations have opportunities and challenges that are completely unlike those facing average-sized and small congregations. Consequently, large-church clergy have little in common with most church leaders, and often have little or no need for the services of their judicatories. This report examines the challenge of connecting large churches to their smaller brethren and the denomination, and identifies some of the ways middle judicatories have been able to entice large congregations to remember their affiliations: http://hirr.hartsem.edu/denom/judicatories_research_lummisrpt2b.html. A link at the top of the article leads to a downloadable MS Word version.
