How’s the Air?

When planting a church, planters often focus on the ground of the community.  How hard or receptive are the people to the Gospel?  What type of sowing will be necessary?  But equally important is the mutual support of the existing Church in the area.  Are the local pastors and congregational leaders encouraging, pledging assistance, dollars and even people resources?  Have they been praying for your arrival even before you knew you were going?  The encouragement of the local Church for a new expression of Church is a great source of courage for the new planter.  It’s great air to breathe.

Peace,
