Mega-churches and discipleship

Just a thought about discipling people for Christ.

This doesn't say that smaller congregations aren't "real" churches; nor does it deny the obvious programmatic advantages of larger churches. But in terms of the presumed "efficiency" of the bigger (esp. the "mega-") congregations, let's look at it this way.
