How to Get Involved in Church Planting | TheResurgence.

There is a great article on TheResurgence.com by Winfield Bevins titled, “How to Get Involved in Church Planting.”

I thought I would post a few quotes from it since there may be some subscribers and friends who may be wondering how they can help us as we step out…nothing too specific, just some good general stuff. Read the full article if you like.

Experts say that church planting is the number one way to reach unchurched people and make new disciples for Jesus Christ. C. Peter Wagner says, “Planting new churches is the most effective evangelistic methodology known under heaven.” Likewise, statistics show that it is much harder for traditional churches to reach the unchurched. Therefore, there is a great need to plant churches that reach the unchurched in our nation. Church planters are modern-day missionaries to North America.

First, you can encourage church planters in your area. Planting a church can be a lonely business. Nearly 80 percent of church plants fail within their first year. One of the primary reasons for failure is not a lack of finances, but a lack of relational support.

Secondly, you can help financially support a church plant. One of the greatest needs for church planting is finances.

Church planting is one of the greatest ways to make disciples. We should all share in the responsibility of impacting our nation for Christ through planting new churches that are gospel-centered and culturally relevant. If we want to be serious about making disciples for the 21st century, we need to get involved in church planting.
