You're not less of a minister simply because you pastor a smaller congregation. You're not less successful in your calling because you pastor a smaller congregation. You're not less valuable or worthy if you're pastoring and plumbing at your church. You're not second-class or second rate in God's eyes. God will reward each man accordingly in His time. To Him, you stand or fall. (Romans 14:5) Don't let others judge you before the time of judgement and don't judge yourself as invaluable. (John 8:14-16) Work the plan. Give it your all because Christ gave His all for us. Seek to serve with no regrets.
You're made by God to do the work of the ministry. So do it! And don't compare yourself to other ministers around you unless a ministry idea at a nearby church could be healthy for your church body. Remember that 1 Thessalonians 2:5 says that it is God who entrusted and approved you with the Gospel. Do your ministry work as you see fit, striving to be worthy of Him, worshipping Him as you repair a flapper or review a sermon point. (1 Thessalonians 2:9-12) Disciple young men, preach, plumb, minister, and mow all in the name of Jesus and for His Kingdom's sake. He will reward the faithful.
