Pastors and leaders of small churches who are waking up to the notion that small is not synonymous with ‘less-than’; that small and healthy are not mutually exclusive; that small may just be God’s plan.
Pastors and leaders who are not looking for another slick church-growth conference, but are looking for encouragement, camaraderie, and inspiration from those who know that there’s a lot to love about a dynamic small church.
A conference for small church pastors, by small church pastors.
Two nights and three days of celebrating, connecting, inspiring, encouraging, and refreshing small church pastors and leaders.
Worship, food and fellowship, workshops and general sessions, personal retreat time, and more.
We believe that small is not a problem to be fixed, but a strategy that God wants to use.
While 93% of churches in America are small (350 or less) and 80% are very small (less than 200), church leadership conferences tend to showcase the smallest percentage of the largest and most progressive congregations.
While attending church conferences over the years, pastors Carl & Kalani Culley found their greatest source of encouragement came from the times spent sharing with other small church pastors — their desire is to create an environment where the small church and its leaders become the focus.
Karl has authored three books aimed at helping small churches thrive – The Grasshopper Myth, Small Church Essentials, and 100 Days to a Healthier Church. He is a voice to and for small churches and the pastors who lead them.
Dale Is the Executive Director of the 95Network, a non-profit ministry designed to help small to medium sized churches through content, conferences, coaching and consulting. He Is the author of Stalled: Hope and Help for Pastors Who Thought They’d Be There By Now.
