The Journey runs eight services across four campuses and continues to aggressively plant new campuses and churches in the Saint Louis region and beyond. Darrin also serves as Vice President of the Acts 29 Church Planting Network and is a regular contributor at The Resurgence. In addition, Patrick recently finished two books: Church Planter: the man, the message and the mission and A Church for the City with Matt Carter.
In this interview: Patrick answers questions about urban church planting, church revitalization, leadership development, and the future of the Southern Baptist Convention (partially in the context of the GCR).
