I once asked a long-time pastor: “What’s one piece of advice you would give a first-time pastor preparing to plant a church?”
We’ve gone mad trying to unlock what everyone since the days of the apostles hasn’t discovered yet: the perfect formula for explosive, exponential kingdom growth.
When laying the foundation for a new plant or revitalization, there’s truly no better advice than this: “Before you do anything else, make sure your people know that you love them.”
Sending your best people means new and healthy churches will be planted, and your congregation will mature.
The workers are few, and the harvest is great. But that does not mean just any and all workers will do.
