5 Ways Churches Should Think Like Church Plants

Last week, Brandon Levering posted five ways established churches should think like plants. I thought it was brilliant.

  2. Church plants feel an acute sense of urgency to engage in evangelism.
  3. Church plants tend to better understand the culture they’re engaging.
  4. Church plants use a wider portion of the congregation in service.
  5. Church plants are more likely to think strategically about planting more churches.
