28 Resources for Planting Churches

By



I received an email this morning from my good friend Phil Peterson asking about resources for a church planting initiative.
I’d appreciate your help.  The short-answer is I’m looking for recommended contacts, resources, ideas on church-planting models, criteria for candidates, and whatever else you think would help me coordinate our church-planting initiative. 

Here’s my response to Phil with links to this blog. I hope you find it helpful…

  • Church Planting Insight #1 - Important to consider: “Those you start the church with are not those you grow the church with.”
  • Missional Living: Lesson #19 - “Leaders must be accountable for disciplemaking.” This is a factor to consider in selecting church planters – have they actually been making any disciples?
  • When to Start Worship Services - Make sure that worship services don’t begin until you have actually baptized new believers and the church planter is making disciples.
Today’s Missional Challenge: Take advantage of the links above to help you form your system and strategy to plant churches that plant churches!
