While developing our plan to start another church in Santiago this fall, we have considered dozens of different launch strategies. It’s a monumental task to plant a cross-culture church in a metropolitan city, and even more so if you are still working full-time in the first church! These are the questions and prospects that we have been wrestling with since the beginning of the year.
But, what if we started 3 new works instead of just 1??? Sounds like a crazy leap of faith… but maybe just what God wants!
I’m not talking about starting from day one fully developed, autonomous, independent churches – but three mission churches. These missions will meet in borrowed facilities for one service a week until the core group grows. The Chilean leaders of the missions will evangelize and disciple people in unreached areas of Santiago. Chileans reaching Chileans! That IS the goal!
Pray for our ministry and church as we plan to put this project in motion during August, September, and October. We still need to raise start-up funds for chairs, church signs, printed material, etc.
Will you help us pray about this exciting project?
