For the past few years, it seems like you can’t be a church planter unless you have a blog. Recently several church planters I know have quit blogging. Either they got too busy with church stuff, ran out of ideas, or just lost interest in it. For me, I was one of those that got […]

When you’re starting out, chances are you don’t have a graphic designer in your core group. Further, since money is tight, you probably don’t have money to hire someone to do graphic work beyond a logo design, which by the way is a must (see this post on why it’s important).  Don’t you dare skimp […]

Shortly after attending Ben Arment’s WhiteBoard Sessions I got a hold of a copy of his new book Church in the Making. It was the first 200 page book I’ve ever read in one day. I just couldn’t put it down. I’ll be sharing my review of Church in the Making on Mondays this month. […]

I remember reading a statistic a while back somewhere that found that most successful church planters had been a part of at least one failed attempt at church planting.  I always wondered why that was until now. In 2005 I entered the world of church planting when I took over the reigns of a church […]

Think about what you did the last time you wanted to know the name, location, or phone number to get a pizza, find a mechanic, or check movie listings. Where’d you go for the information? If you’re like most people, you went to your computer or smart phone.  It’s quicker and easier than looking it […]

As the day went on I took fewer notes.  I think it was because my brain was getting full and my body was getting tired. That doesn’t mean that these next three guys weren’t worth hearing. Actually, my favorite speaker of the day was James McDonald. I had followed his ministry for about ten years […]

Perry’s been one of my favorite pastors for a while now. I almost went to a church in Anderson, SC before I knew anything about him or New Spring Church.  He speaks with a mixture of humor and authority. Here’s God needs to know he can trust you with pain. Before they (Shadrack, Meshack and […]

Jon Tyson is lead pastor of Trinity Grace Church in New York City. I had never heard of John Tyson before the conference, but I thought he was one of the best speakers of the day. His talk reminded me of listening to Jim Cymbala. You just sat there mesmerized by the power with which […]

I had been doing church planting for three years before anyone ever told me about using school hallways for childrens rooms. I had seen it done in movie theaters, but never thought about doing it in a school. It wasn’t until I was faced with a situation in which the school we were in wouldn’t […]
