Called to Plant a Church? This Might Help

I have the privilege to speak to men and woman who are being called to start new things for the Kingdom. I am always inspired after hearing how God is working in their lives; challenging them to move outside of their comfort zone and follow Jesus. It’s because of them that we get new churches.

I’ve learned a few things during these conversations and identified some principles about calling.

One of our strategic partners at NewThing is The Aspen Group. I recently sat down with them to talk about this topic for their Alignment Conference Podcast series.

If you’re thinking of planting a church, it might help.

My Interview with Son of a Church Planter

Last week I was in Columbus, Ohio hanging out with church leaders and church planters. We were talking about starting new networks of churches in the region. I am really excited about what’s going on in Columbus as more and more leaders are asking themselves, what’s it going to take to see movements of reproducing churches in our city. I can’t wait to see.

During my visit, I was interviewed for the podcast, Son of a Church Planter. My friend Brandon Cruise talks to church planters and leaders. Brandon keeps it real in every interview. Here’s the one he did with me.
