When we talk of church planting, beginning new churches in new towns, it’s easy to believe that only the largest church with the most resources could ever pull off such a thing…but it’s far from the reality. In the Vineyard, every church really does get to play. Let me show you one way that smaller churches from very small towns are playing a part in what God is doing.
This past week I got to sit down for a couple of days with the leaders of the Vineyard Small Town Church Planting Partnership: Luke Geraty, Joel Seymor, and Ross Nelson. They have formed this partnership to work towards doing what none of them could ever accomplish alone—the beginning of new churches, new discipling communities in small towns all across America. And I think they’re on to something.
In this video of our discussions, they’re talking about coaching and triads and partnering together in a way that is very encouraging. Check it out for yourself, I think you’re going to like it.
And after you watch it, please let us know what you think. Is this something you could see yourself, or your church partnering with others to accomplish?
We’ve got lots of resources designed specifically for our local Vineyard churches who want to accomplish the same thing.
