In addition, Advance the Church will be holding an October Regional entitled:
“Multiply: Becoming a Church Planting Church”
From the Advance the Church Website: We all understand that every living thing multiplies; it’s part of the definition of life. But, it’s also at the core of the mission of the church– Jesus didn’t just call the church to grow. He called it to multiply. One of the struggles our generation is facing is that so few churches do multiply, and many churches don’t know how to begin multiplying. Obviously, as the gospel must advance, this is a problem we’re responsible to explore and work to resolve. Join us October 8, 2010 as Darrin Patrick, Chris Atwell, and Tyler Jones examine the need for churches to multiply and what it takes to become a church planting church.
