Church planting is demanding work. Creating and sustaining gospel communities world wide requires relentless dedication to our nice commissioning by Jesus to go and make disciples of all nations (Matt. 28:19).
Church planting is worthy work. We work for the glory of our King, anticipating the day when an amazing multitude “from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages” will stand earlier than the throne loudly crying out, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” (Rev. 7:9–10).
Our labors embrace each victories and likewise defeats. And simply as we encourage each other throughout trials, we rejoice collectively in instances of triumph. We have a good time God’s grace in our church-planting endeavors with grateful hearts.
