It’s that simple. Small churches outnumber megachurches by such massive amounts that there are more of every kind of small church than there are of the same kinds of megachurches.

Let’s turn that inside-out to see the other side of the same truth.

Less than 1 percent of unhealthy churches are megachurches because less than 1 percent of ALL churches are megachurches.

There are 90 unhealthy small churches to every unhealthy megachurch because small churches outnumber megachurches by about 90 to 1. (The rest are medium to big churches.)

There’s no evidence that small churches are more prone to ill-health than megachurches. The abundance of unhealthy small churches compared to unhealthy megachurches is not a crisis, it’s mathematically inevitable.
