If you're a family man or woman and don't go to a big church, "you are so stinkin' selfish," says pastor and author Andy Stanley.  

It boils down to how people build communities and friendships, particularly for children and teenagers.  

"We want churches to be large enough so that there are enough middle-schoolers and high-schoolers so that we don't have one youth group with middle school and high school together," Stanley says. "We want there to be so many adults that there will be so many middle-school and high-school kids so that we can have two separate environments." 

Stanley argues that this model will keep the gospel alive for the next generation.
