I am a part of a network called Churches Planting Churches Network. It is an assembly of pastors and churches from around Tennessee with a heart to start new churches. We meet monthly for encouragement, training, and resource sharing. We also vote for new church starts to receive funding. This morning we have a meeting in Cookeville and we are voting a new church in the network that will be planting a congregation in Richmond, VA. The Journey is going to sponsor this church and we're really excited about it.
In the midst of mindset among some churches of competition and turf wars, it is good to know that there are pastors and churches with God's heart for the world and our working to bring about lasting change in our communities.
Oh yeah, NCAA Tournament starts today...three weeks of madness!
