Planting healthy churches that will go on to plant other healthy churches is an immense task. It will require far more of us than we have in ourselves.
As church planters, we have a propensity to function as though we can do it on our own. We tend to be highly driven—focused intently on the goal ahead. It’s right that the glory of Jesus Christ be our motivation for planting healthy churches—churches where his gospel is proclaimed and embodied before a watching world.
But our tendency to take matters into our own hands—attempting to shoulder the many burdens that come with planting a church—can be detrimental.
In short, church planters need to embrace limitations and walk with humility. But how can we do this? I’m joined by my friend Kyllum Lewis to discuss these things on the podcast today.
