Tomorrow I have the privilege of preaching at LifeChurch in Aurora, CO, a church plant that began in 2008. Todd Sinclair, the lead pastor, and I share common threads in our background: we both lived and worked in San Diego at the same time, though we didn’t know each other back then.
Having planted a church myself (yay LifePoint!), I am honored to be speaking at another church plant.
Simply put, I love church plants and church planters. I love the sense of mission that hangs in the air. I get energized watching the spiritually disconnected get connected. I enjoy the questions a searching soul asks. There is something special watching a person “get it.”
Starting new churches is the single most effective way to reach those who are spiritually adrift. Having lived it, I honestly believe that’s true.
- We need more men and women who will help start new churches.
- We need more existing churches that will give birth to new churches.
- We need people who have been blessed financially to fund new churches.
- We need more new churches.
