Episode 373: Planting a Multi-Denominational Church

In Episode 373 of the NewChurches Q&A Podcast, Daniel and Ed do a live podcast recording at Exponential 2019 in Orlando. On this episode, Daniel and Ed discuss ideas about incorporating more than one denomination in your church plant. Here is today’s question:

“We are a church that is planted by four different denominations – Anglican Church of Canada, Christian Reform, Baptist, and Missionary Alliance. We are putting together a board of governance and trying to navigate these waters. How can we, as a congregational church, move forward while incorporating the other denominations and still doing what God has called us to do?”
