Tomorrow night we are having our second church plant interest meeting for our church. I am looking forward to enjoying a meal together and talking about some of the factors that go into the decision to join a church plant team. The people in our church who are praying about joining this plant are such examples of faith and godly sacrifice–their willingness to even pray about giving up their jobs, their homes, and their local relationships is an amazing statement of their desire to live for God’s glory. Certainly some who desire to go will not be able to. Others who never thought they would move will feel that God is calling them to go. In the end, God knows exactly who should be a part of the team that becomes the core of the new church. The journey to that moment will be one of many tears, prayer, hopes, fears, surprises and faith. Thank the Lord for the unstoppable gospel in its onward march in this world and in each of our lives.
