Don’t we have a lot of churches in North America? Do we really need more?
Here is why one of the best ways you can leverage your life for God’s mission is to plant a church in North America:
Awareness of the need. While the population of North America continues to grow, 3,500 to 4,000 churches close every year. We need to plant more churches to keep pace with population growth and reach the majority of Americans who don’t attend a church.
Buildings don’t equal bodies. Many communities have church buildings, but they have no church bodies ministering the gospel.
Changing culture. Although the gospel doesn’t change, the culture in which we’re communicating it does. We need new churches to reach new generations of people with the unchanging the gospel.
