BARRE, Vt. – Dr. Terry Dorsett has worked with one of America’s largest congregations and has also been the pastor of small churches in Vermont, what he refers to as the least-churched state in America. In the new book Mission Possible: Reaching the Next Generation through the Small Church (published by CrossBooks), he shares his thoughts on how to reach the next generation of worshippers.
“Many small churches want to reach the next generation but do not know how,” explains Dorsett. “They see larger churches doing big events and hiring multiple staff members and they know they cannot do that. But they want to do something.”
Mission Possible gives small churches practical and easy-to-use ideas that will help them reach the next generation regardless of their size or budget.
Dorsett has discovered, through both personal experience and extensive research, easy-to-use methods and ideas that any church can put into practice. He believes there is nothing a larger church can do that a smaller church is unable to accomplish.
“What is important is that every church, regardless of size, fulfills the call God has for them in the community where God has placed them.”
