What could be better than seeing a church growing where there was no church before?
Seeing that church growing through the attraction of unchurched people who come to put their faith in Jesus.
Too often, a church grows in one place because a church declines in a different place. Some churches grow merely by people transfers. But that doesn’t yield a nett increase in the number of people loving and following Jesus. Outsiders remain outside.
Church planting – the formation of new congregations by intentional engagement with unbelievers – has been shown over the long term to provide far greater opportunities to make contact with outsiders than the mere maintenance of existing, well-established ministries. For that reason, church planting is one of the most rewarding ministry experiences possible. Are you cut out for it?
Be warned – church planting is not for the faint-hearted. Exciting as it is, and as attractive as it might sound, it’s important for prospective planters to be reliably assessed and to take up the work only after careful consideration.
