Domestic Church Planting

Sep 10, 2022

Read Acts 1:8

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Reflect

Our commission is no larger than the one God gave the early church: to start making disciples at home and to reach out, from there, to the ends of the earth. And the power for accomplishing our vision—of planting 1,000 churches by 2050—can only come from the Holy Spirit.

  • Pray for the four church planters who began their training at the Summit in August.

  • Ask God to protect their hearts from selfish ambition and fill their hearts with a desire to see God’s kingdom advance in the cities where he is sending them.

  • Pray that God would raise up at least 50 people from the Summit to move to be a part of a new church plant this year.

  • Ask God to use our Future Leaders Cohort to develop leaders for the next wave of church plants.

  • Pray that all of our church planters and their teams would walk faithfully with God, seeking him daily.

  • Ask that God would strengthen and protect their marriages and families.

  • Pray that God would use these church plants as powerful witnesses to the truth of the gospel and that many would be saved through their ministry.

  • Praying with kids? Have them pray, “God, thank you for letting our church be a part of building your kingdom. Help us always grow and be able to start churches in more places. Bless those who go to start new churches and help them to be faithful like you are faithful.”
