Helping Churches Thrive

November 15, 2023

9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Karl Vaters produces resources for Helping Small Churches Thrive at


His 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. He also believes that big and small churches can and should work together more often – to the benefit and blessing of everyone.


Karl is the author of four books and also hosts a bi-weekly podcast, The Church Lobby


He has been in pastoral ministry for over 40 years and is the teaching pastor of Cornerstone Christian Fellowship, in Orange County, California, where he has ministered for over 30 years with his wife, Shelley. They have three children and two grandkids.
