    Episode 620: Introducing the New NewChurches.com

    We are excited to announce the relaunch of NewChurches.com, now powered by Send Network. Send Network is behind NewChurches.com and we are excited to provide free resources from church planting experts across the evangelical landscape who offer new insights and best practices on how to plant and multiply churches. As churches produce disciples, it's natural for those disciples to multiply themselves but it's also natural for new churches to form where there are new disciples being made. Another way of saying it... Churches make disciples and disciples make churches.

Relevant Q&A in a timely fashion

Grateful for the insight from this podcast. I only wish it was around several years ago when we first kicked off our church plant. Nevertheless, seems like these questions and topics are ongoing for us "older" church plants as well. Thanks guys and keep the insight coming!
