Church growth conference helps pastors feel like miserable failures

From Lark News:

PEORIA, Ill. — The “Bigger Church, Bigger Impact” conference wrapped on Friday, leaving participants feeling drained and dejected.
“I came here thinking my church was doing all right. Now I see we’re so dinky and dumb, it’s not even funny,” says pastor Steve Irvine of Reno, Nev., who went to his hotel room and cried after each session.

Skating the thin edge between satire and reality! I still remember the Sunday a decade ago that I returned from a megachurch conference to my small church.

More church laughs (including a Baptist one) here.
