    MoP207 Church Planting - Modern Schemes

    MoP207 Church Planting - Modern Schemes

    New church planting "keys" or "schemes," models or frameworks, come around regularly. Pragmatism overshadows hermeneutics to produce the next rapid results methodology that will surely be effective this time. Careful, solid preparation of the church planter should enable discernment and careful implementation based on genuine biblical consistency. Adapt what may be good; reject man-centered definitions; take time to build a solid foundation that stands the test of time. Our Western culture tends to be easily swayed by marketing claims and short-term proofs of rapid results. Let's do better than that as we do the steady work of planting biblical churches with genuine believers and qualified indigenous church leaders in every people group on earth.

    MoP205 Church Planting - Universal Challenges

    MoP205 Church Planting - Universal Challenges

    In this series, we want to lift the veil of mystery and sometimes misunderstanding about church planting. If church planting is a sign of a healthy church, every church member should be aware of some of the issues and challenges church planters face, some of the joys and sorrows, and the needed plans and particulars of the church plant. This episode touches on seven universal challenges beginning with "D" words: distinguish, decide, determine, discern, develop, define, and differentiate.

    MoP204 Church Planting Is a Sign of a Healthy Church

    MoP204 Church Planting Is a Sign of a Healthy Church

    Church planting is a surprisingly polarizing topic. It comes at the intersection of ecclesiology and missiology, which is the hallmark of Missions on Point. So, though we may say things that spark enthusiastic discussions, we'll start this series on church planting over these eight episodes, fueled by my own experience in church planting at home and abroad and lots of study over a handful of decades. May you be encouraged in heart and mind to love the local church and become a proponent of church planting.

Wonderful resource

I am thankful for this podcast. I’ve been listening about 8 or 9 months and I’ve been encouraged to think more about missions and pray for my church’s missionaries. I must saw that the emphasis on missions is on point. 🙃 Seriously though, it’s a great resource for the church and I hope more people listen.

Encouraging

I like the direction this podcast is going. I look forward to listening to more of these. Maybe you can invite some others to interview on your podcast that would help to bring more voices with the same perspective and even connect us with more resources to encourage further study.
