reasons to plant churches

There are many reasons to plant churches – both biblical and personal. Here are three.

1) Too many people are lost and heading into a Christless eternity. Common understanding is this: starting new churches is the most effective way to reach into the harvest.

2) Jesus Christ wants us to start churches, and thus it fits my new vision. I am sparing you the theological expression – it resides in many books, including both of mine – Raising Rabbits not Elephants and Gathering to Movement: Gathering as Essential to our Culture; oh yeah, in the Bible too.

3) Since church can have a very simple expression, I am able to be part of this amazing harvesting engagement. It can actually be fun and simple to reproduce.
