October Starts Series of Church Planters Meetings

Mitchell Maloney, Director of the Office of Church of God Church Planting, has announced a series of Church Planters Interest Meetings and training intensives, the first of which was held last weekend.

On Saturday, October 5, the first gathering was held at the Princeton Pike Church of God in Hamilton, Ohio where men and women who are considering planting a life-giving church came together. According to Maloney, the meeting was the first conducted for:
• Church planting pastors and spouses
• Potential launch team members.
• Pastors who are interested in Mother / Daughter church planting
• State / Regional Task Force members
• District Overseers who may be interested in planting a church as a district

The meetings will answer questions such as:
• Why should we plant new churches?
• Who can plant a life-giving church?
• How can I build a launch team?
• What kind of church planting model should I consider?
• How important is personal evangelism?
• Tips on fund raising

“In the past three years, the Church of God has planted almost 700 churches in North America,” Maloney said. “You can be a part of the beginning stages of a fresh church planting movement!”
