520    Do you lead a small church? Big churches get all the love.
       Articles, books, conferences-they mostly feature leaders 
       of large congregations. Yet big churches are a small part 
       of the ecclesial landscape. In fact, more than 90 percent 
       of churches have fewer than 200 people. That means small 
       churches play a big part in what God is doing. Small 
       Church Essentials is for leaders of these smaller 
       congregations. It encourages them to steward their role 
       well, debunking myths about small churches while offering 
       principles for leading a dynamic, healthy small church. 
       Based on the popular six-hour lecture that Karl Vaters 
       delivers to church leaders across the country, Small 
       Church Essentials will affirm small church leaders and 
       show them how to identify what they do well, and how to do
       it even better. Listeners will: - Be assured that leading 
       a small congregation does not make them ministry failures 
       - Come away inspired to lead with passion, regardless the 
       size of their church - Have field-tested principles for 
       leading a church in their context - Possess new metrics 
       for biblically measuring vitality in small churches - Have
       a toolkit of resources to use in their everyday ministry. 
       Karl Vaters has been a small church pastor for 30 years, 
       is the author of The Grasshopper Myth: Big Churches, Small
       Churches, and the Small Thinking that Divides Us (2013), 
       and travels extensively to churches and conferences to 
       speak about leading a small church well. If you are 
       pastoring a small church, this book will be a breath of 
       fresh air. It will affirm your calling while giving you 
       fresh tools to help you lead. It will help you: - Stop 
       believing lies about small churches - Lead your church to 
       fulfill the role only small churches can - Understand your
       congregation's strengths and weaknesses - Turn around a 
       dying or unhealthy church - Identify good trends and bad 
       in church and culture.
