If you are anyways like me you have embraced the New Covenant Grace "message" full throttle. You are a crusader with a "message" burning in your heart. You have been totally set free from all fear, shame and condemnation and are enjoying your walk with God in ways that you have never experienced in your entire life. You can never again be satisfied with "church as usual" and are fully aware of the fact that the Bible points to a more excellent way! Here is the bottom line...You just have to do something about it! So the question is..."How do I make a difference for my family, my friends and my community?" The answer simply is....plant a new church!
I trust that by now you fully realize that tradition and church planting do not go hand in hand! OK....you have some fears, maybe just concerns but your doubt seems to be...Can I do it?
If you have read my past 3 Blog posts (If you haven't take a few minutes and read them now) you probably have noted that I am trying to show you that what I am suggesting is really quite simple. You may not agree with my simplistic ideals quite yet, but I really do mean it... planting a new New Covenant Grace type church is really quite simple! But you have to make a commitment to just doing it!
In my past two posts I've given you some basic ideas on how to begin. Yet, for you to take the initial step into the deep water seems a little difficult for you to digest right now. For instance....how would you handle any difficult problems that might occur? To be fully truthful...as long as you are dealing with any other people the difficult problems will for certainly show up. Then what do you do?
OK...here is what I am suggesting....If you do decide to take off and implement the things that I have been presenting, I want you to know that you will not be alone! In today's society modern technology exists that can help in ways that we've never had available in years gone by. For instance...there are people who will certainly help you, me being one of them! I know how to plant churches! I've planted many and I have worked with many church planters. This is a vital part of my DNA! So, I am available to you for pointers, suggestions and guidance. I also know others that can help in areas I fall short in.
So..If you feel any stirring within you as a result of reading these past blog posts, feel free to give me a shout. Let's talk! I really mean it!
