(I’m not sure if I’ve posted this before, but it’s come to my mind again.)
For a while I’ve been somewhat intrigued with church planting.
I think the main reason is that the premise of planting a church is that one church is growing and the need for another church arises out of the growth of the first.
I’ve always wanted to be a part of a community that is growing in such a way that necessitates the planting of a new church. I want to be part of a church community that is continually training leaders to pastor over new groups of believers.
While I am a life time Presbyterian, there are so many things that interest me in other denominations or the non-denom churches.
I’m not saying that Presbyterians are dead. I just have to stop and start to wonder why we are not growing in the ways that necessitates church planting. I’m not saying either that Presbyterians don’t grow.
I’m just wanting to look outside my own tradition and learn from what others are doing in the world of church.
I want to be more well-rounded in the realm of understanding what is happening outside of my one tradition. And possibly bring some of the other traditions into my own.
