Matt Chandler discusses the various church planting and discipleship models, and the pros and cons of these models. Curiously, there is a huge schism over these two approaches today, and generally, this schism seems to follow along generational lines.
The number one question in most churches today is ‘How can we properly, adequately, and effectively make disciples?’ Matt Chandler addressed this question in the Acts 29 church planter’s training. If this isn’t your church’s number one question, you should probably shut down the church and go read Matthew 28:19-20 again.
At this Acts 29 church planting event, John Hannah spoke about spiritual formation, and specifically, how to overcome sin in our lives. When you grow in your mental knowledge of truth, but not in your participation of that truth, it’s just a matter of time until you fall into grievous sin.
