Despite our heart for the city, our combined ministry efforts are hardly putting a dent in the enormous task of sharing the gospel with every man, woman and child in greater Austin. We agree that the need for church planting in our area is undeniably staggering. We have seen that one of the most effective ways to reduce the lostness of our area is to plant new churches, while at the same time refreshing existing churches.
We recognize that many local organizations are currently involved in church planting. We celebrate those who are sending and supporting church planters. We also want to advance the gospel through a coordinated effort.
As such, we prayerfully seek to:
- Plant new churches
- Develop training centers to better equip planters with the needed skills and knowledge
- Communicate with each other about church planting plans, strategies and best practices
- Renew our hearts for evangelism in our existing churches.
