In his article on church planting, Tim Keller writes that “The vigorous, continual planting of new congregations is the single most crucial strategy for 1) the numerical growth of the Body of Christ in any city, and 2) the continual corporate renewal and revival of the existing churches in a city.”
Keller goes on to argue that a surprising as this might be for those who done any amount of research on the subject his statement isn’t even controversial. In other words if we want to be about the spreading of the Gospel, we will want to be involved in church planting.
At Kaleo Church, we are passionate about church planting. We support 10 church plants in India, and from day one we have been putting money aside to use to send out a church planter from our own congregation. We are developing a residency to train men up in order to send them out to plant new churches. We are a part of both Acts 29 and the Treasuring Christ Together Church Planting Network which are both designed to help train, equip and encourage the planting of more churches.
