“And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.” 2 Timothy 2:2
Planting ‘church-planting churches’ is our most important next generation work. This past fall, I and other pastors in Harvest Bible Fellowship had the privilege and opportunity to train a class of 40 pastors from around the world, preparing them to plant, or in a few instances replant, Christ-exalting Harvest churches over the next year.
Planting ‘church-planting churches’ is our most important next generation work.
A few weeks ago, on their final day in our Harvest Training Center, I had some time with nearly all of these pastors to answer a question about a ministry matter that had resonated with them during their training here. In the hope that these brief conversations will be of benefit to you also, we’ll post the resulting Q&A clips several at a time over the next few months.
If you or someone you know would like to be part of a core group in any of these planting locations, contact email@example.com for more info.
