Ed Stetzer has posted a great blog about the importance of reaching our global cities for Jesus. His point is simple: large cities exert tremdendous influence over more than just their geographic area. At a quickening pace, large cities such as New York and Los Angeles influence areas not only across our country but across the world.
Starting new churches is one solution; starting church planting movements is the best solution. Be sure to check out the links Stetzer includes in his post.
