One of my best rules (suggestions) for church planting is don’t try to be a lone ranger. That may work in western movies, but not in church planting. (And even he had Tonto…which makes me question his name…but that’s another post…)
If God is birthing a vision in you, the chances are great that He is birthing the same or similar vision in the hearts of others.
Find those who share your passion for reaching the lost and as you share your vision with them….after you’ve prayed together tons…then, if God is in it…form a team… To be successful you will need buy-in from other people. You may even need to give your vision away to people you trust. (Read a post about that thought process HERE.)
I hear from those claiming to be church planters with a vision who say they have no one to help them plant. My best advice would be to wait until God reveals those people who are ready to share the burden with you.
There will be lonely nights out on the range of church planting…you’ll be glad you have others around to encourage you to stay the course….
Church planters….do you agree? How did you find those who were willing to support your God-given vision?
