Can This Work In A Small Church?

Can This Work in a Small Church? is hosted by karl Vaters, a small church pastor and author of several books including Small Church Essentials.

Each episode looks at a specific church leadership topic from a small church perspective.

We'll describe how smaller congregations need to approach most aspects of ministry differently than big churches do, but the goal will always be to find practical answers as we follow Christ's mission together.
