Too many church planters might think that a good church has powerful worship, practical teaching, and a great venue.
Like Paul the Apostle, you are on a mission. Though your circumstances are less dramatic and dire than Paul’s, do you know that the mission is still the same?

Healthy communication among church planting team members is vital to the effective starting of a new church.
“Your company is the stories people tell about it.”-
Coaching is incredibly powerful! Imagine how a church planter would be more effective because someone listened to them, helped them to listen to God, and then asked good questions which enabled them to focus on doing what God wanted them to do next in starting a new church.
The biggest challenge facing church planters is often the Leadership Challenge. This requires being the right person more than it requires doing the right things.
“If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them wanders away, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others on the hills and go out to search for the one that is lost?”
