Church Planting Resource Roundup

A week from today on The Exchange, I am going to host a few pastors and church leaders for a discussion on church planting, specifically the importance of established churches planting new churches. In anticipation of our discussion next week, I wanted to provide a brief collection of some church planting blog posts and resources I think may be helpful for church planters or churches exploring the possibility of planting new churches.

5 Reasons Established Churches Should Plant Churches

Pastors of established churches should be engaged in church planting.

3 Pieces of Advice from a Church Planter to Church Planters

Church planting is difficult, but a few simple actions can make it a bit easier

6 Indicators That You May Be A Church Planter

Are you a church planter? How can you know?

4 Free Resources for New Church Planters

Church planters could always use free resources. Check out these four from LifeWay.

Churches must be planting churches, but it is crucial that churches are sending the right people out to plant these churches. The Church Planter Candidate Assessment is a great resource that helps churches and other church planting organizations identify identify the strengths and weaknesses of potential church planters. I recommend it to you, especially if you're a pastor of an established church searching for someone to lead your new church plant endeavors.

Do you have additional church planting resources that may be of help to others? Leave some words of wisdom or helpful links in the comments.
