Financial Fallout

Consider the financial fallout of the mega-church movement. Is there not an abundance of money demanded and supplied for mega-churches that smaller churches never see?

It seems to me that a new deliberateness is required by Reformed evangelicals to fund church plants, mentorships, and theological education. Already, young Christians and young church plants have a difficult time finding the resources to help them in kingdom work.

By contrast, the mega-churches with the money will become more clearly allied with the bible colleges, seminaries and even mission agencies who adopt a similar 'lowest common denominator' approach. There is money there, but it has strings attached.

Those who have convictions may find they are marginalized both theologically and financially.
