Episode 244: Moving to a New City

How do you make friends when you’re the new kid on the block? 

In Episode 244 of the NewChurches Q&A Podcast, Daniel and Todd discuss planting a church in a new city and partnering with local churches. Here’s Brandon with today’s question: 

When moving to a new city, building a new team, and launching a new church, how do you partner with local churches that are already existing in the area? How do you coach young and new pastors to understand they are coming to take part in what God is already doing in the city?

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • Why building relationships with local churches, businesses, and high capacity leaders in the area you are moving to matters.
  • Strategic ways to partner with surrounding churches.
