Have you ever been a part of the birth of a church? It is way more fun than about anything else in the world.
My husband, Ken and I have had the privilege of being part of 5 such births in our lives – and we can’t think of anything we would rather do than do it again and again and again.
The “hard” parts of church planting are nothing compared to the joys. We have said often that If we were given the opportunity from the Lord, we would do it all again, in a nano-second.
As we study 1st Thessalonians, a letter written to a newly planted church in the city of Thessalonica, I’d like to share some of our “church-planting” stories with you.
I think you’ll see that church “births” are pretty much the same today as they were 2,000 years ago.
