"Dr. Robinson's courage to show us the reality of church in a post-modern era is both refreshing and invigorating. This is more than a book, it's a manual on how to be huge regardless of the numeric size of your ministry. He redefines what success is and shows us, through precept and example, that you don't have to be mega in size in order to have a major impact in your community. This ought to be required reading for every pastor."

You're about to benefit from one of the very best leaders I've known over a 30 year military career chock full of exceptional leaders. Seriously. You'll learn personal leadership from a man committed to his family and God's calling on his life. Professional leadership from a business-savvy pastor growing a fledgling staff through many challenges into an effective ministry team impacting thousands of lives over many decades. Integrative leadership that peels off divisive labels to capitalize on New England's social, racial, economic and Christian diversity and capture the power inherent in a united Body of Christ. And spiritual leadership from a man humbly but relentlessly led by God to return souls to their Father. Oh - and fair warning - you'll be confronted by a leader that looks you straight in the eye and asks, "Why not you?"
I was blessed to hear many of these stories over coffee when LeAnn and I served as elders under Steve and Mary at CrossPoint. I have no doubt that you and the folks you share this book with will be blessed and inspired too.

Calling, vision and being Spirit led does not void strategic planning. Through the narrative of CrossPoint’s journey from a store front church to a multicultural ministry making regional impacts, Dr. Robinson show us how praying and planning are crucial components to ministry. More than the history of a ministry, Mega-small presents to us critical principles that all pastors would do well to appropriate. Dr. Robinson’s work gives us both overarching principles and checklists for ministry. Wherever you find yourself on your ministry journey, this book will serve you not only as a resource but as encouragement as you fulfill God’s calling in your life.
