Episode 283: Parachute Planting

We should get in and under a local church as often and quickly as possible.

In Episode 283 of the NewChurches Q&A Podcast, Daniel and Ed discuss ministering to the saints while you’re in the early stages of planting your church. Here’s James with today’s questions:

We are in the early stages of church planting and preparation. As I’m seeing people come to know Christ for the very first time, or perhaps really committing their lives to Christ, there isn’t an official church yet. What do I do with these people? While they are coming into our homes and being discipled, how do I continue to push forward and move into planting while also holding this idea of gathering together with other saints? 

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • The importance of new believers connecting to a local church.
  • Why you should value the church at an even higher level.
