In recent years, a major shift has taken place regarding the topic of conversation among church leaders. Where there was once much buzz about the newest church growth strategy the conversation seems to have shifted to church planting strategies.
Along with this shift in conversation has come a renewed focus upon the gospel in the life of the believer. Where the focus was once upon folks in seats it is now upon the gospel in hearts. I praise God for his grace to lead us in this shift, even if it’s only in a small percentage of American churches.
Also, along with this shift have come a stream of voices seeking to rally the church to Biblical faithfulness. In the area of church planting, none have echoed more loudly than those behind the Acts29 Network.
The following video is from Darrin Patrick, pastor of The Journey in St. Louis, Mo. Who works closely with Acts 29 and has led his own church in their vision of being a church planting churches. Take a look at this promo for his new book.
