Just Do It Already!

Our bishops are meeting, and they’ve talked about the importance of starting new churches. They describe their desire to ramp up the church planting efforts from 75 new churches a year to 365 churches a year.

“The bishops not only envision planting at least one new church every day outside the United States, where there is significant membership growth, but also starting a new church every day in the United States, where the membership has declined for 40 years, [Bishop Lindsey Davis] said.”

I have only been in the UMC as a probationary elder for about a year and a half, and I’m already exhausted from all the talking. I’ve heard so much about starting new churches, but I have seen very little done to actually start new churches. I know it takes money; I know it’s complicated. Yet still, I want to say just do it already!
