Why do some church plants fail? (5)

Seek out training

Why do some church plants fail? I don’t know. But I do know that I’ve had to seek out training for myself in the process.

Now as I look back over the years, I remember the numerous seminars we’ve attended and books on church planting that I’ve read. Sometimes I’d put the book away thinking that I’m wasting precious time reading someone else’s experience. But now I see how each one encouraged me and gave me perspective in what I’m doing.

I’ve tried numerous approaches through the years and sometimes I get tired of these “approaches.” But I’ve learned from all of them. Some were specifically local but others were international in nature.

There has also been a trail of audio, video and online training for planters that were helpful. None of these were the special “key” that enabled the process but all of them played an important role in molding my thinking and giving training and encouragement to move on (Tweet this).
