From a friend of mine
I get here that we are contrasting both & thats sure good to know. But being a Saved Christian in an area of the country thats apparently Post-Christian,....where Christianity is no longer the dominant civil religion, I am not sure it matters what size the church is.....primarily because people aren't going. Then, large & small.....what happens to Christianity & does church define Christianity?
Here are some interesting statistics if you buy it. And I used to think Albany NY was a good place to live. Almost moved up there early in my career.
As far as the metrics for claiming cities are post Christian, I think the deck was stacked.
A small church could be defined any number of ways. Less than 150 regular attenders, or a Pastorial staff of two or less. If the whole local body meets at the same time, I think all of the "small church" positive attributes could be found.
Difficult to find a "one man band" church that does not exhibit some of the negative attributes of a small church.
