Shrinking The Megachurch

It happened early on. It was an intentional choice, says New Hope Christian Fellowship Founder/Pastor Wayne Cordeiro. He had to decide whether to build a big church or big people. He chose big people. So for the first 15 years, Cordeiro led his church to plant more than 70 churches. Another intentional decision early on, Cordeiro says, was whether he would be a Kingdom builder or an empire builder. I chose the former, he shares. It was the more expensive road to take. But we made that choice in the first five years of our church plant, and from those decisions, God led us on an amazing adventure.

Shrinking the Megachurch is an autobiographical journey that led New Hope to where they are today, 134 churches later. In this free resource, Cordeiro shares lessons and lesions, signposts and stretch marks of the leadership decision that God has honored. More than 5,000 people have gone on to populate the 24 church plants in one city alone. And God is not done yet. Learn from the indispensable leadership decisions Cordeiro made early on to shrink the megachurch.
