Hi, I’m Karl and I’m a small church pastor. I love helping small churches thrive by writing books, speaking at conferences and creating other resources at KarlVaters.com. Lately, this has included S.P.A.R.K. Online (Small-Church Pastors Adapt & Recover Kit), which is updated regularly with new resources to help small churches deal with issues related to the COVID-19 crisis and aftermath. My heart is to help pastors of small churches (up to 90 percent of us) find the resources to lead well, and to capitalize on the unique advantages that come with pastoring a small church – something virtually every pastor will spend at least some of their ministry years doing. I also believe that big and small churches can and should work together more often, to the benefit and blessing of everyone. I've been in pastoral ministry for over 40 years. Currently, I'm the teaching pastor of Cornerstone Christian Fellowship, a healthy small church in Orange County, California, where I've served since 1992 with my wife, Shelley.Read more Read less
