It’s easy to look down on megachurches and assume they are using man-centered methods to draw in a crowd.  But Ed Stetzer’s words here are helpful:

As raw data, numbers mean little. What brings meaning to the numbers are the stories behind them – the changed lives and transformed communities.

Nothing can replace the work you do in your own church, your own community, among the lost in your own neighborhood.  But we can also learn from others – many of whom were small churches themselves a few years ago.
