|We planted Lake Hills Church in North LA County in 1990.|
Ever since planting a church it seems that church planters and potential church planters have been asking me this question:
“Don’t start with your friends from seminary.”
“Make sure you have several dress rehearsals before your grand opening Sunday.”
“Start five groups before you begin weekly worship.”
I’d study the culture, incarnate the gospel, make disciples — baptize them and teach them to obey — and then form lots of missional communities. That’s what I’d do if I went to start a church today.
