HCR026: Getting a Church-Plant Started

In this episode, I talk about some of the first steps necessary in starting a new church. Here are some of the points:
  • Ask God to lead you to other like-minded people who are seeking Him about starting a church.
  • Meet with the leaders of your current church and humbly share what God is doing in your heart.
  • Seek counsel from the leaders of your church, as you ask to be sent out as a church plant.
  • Pray. This is the first, second, and third most important thing church planters must do!
  • If the church will not send you out, seek another spiritual covering from churches in the community or those outside the community.
  • I discuss four steps to take in finding people in your area to whom God is speaking the same things about church planting.
