EVANGELISM AND CHURCH PLANTING
We are seeing an explosion of church planting in many places in Asia and Africa as our church planters boldly declare the name of Jesus with miracles accompanying the preaching of God’s Word.
As we plant churches, we train and mentor church leaders so that they can disciple new believers, enabling a generation of new leaders to be raised up and a movement of new churches to be birthed.
World Outreach International is committed to training our workers to not only bring people to a personal knowledge of Christ but to also make them disciples – the final command of Jesus.
Those disciples in turn are encouraged to share the Good News of personal salvation and to connect with churches that will nourish and strengthen them, through pastoral care and spiritual leadership, so that they too will become equipped to make disciples.
Church planting happens when these disciples gather together for fellowship, prayer and the study of God’s Word and numbers grow to the point where new pastoral leaders are appointed and a new church springs up out of this growth.
Church Planting Movements (CPM) occur when there is intentional rapid and multiplicative increase in indigenous churches planting churches within a given people group or population segment.
- Rapid increases in new church starts
- Churches are multiplying themselves
- These are all indigenous churches
Growth is generated from within the local Church rather than from without. It is the missionary’s job to introduce the Gospel, but then the momentum becomes indigenous so that the initiative and drive of the movement comes from within the people group rather than from outsiders.
Church planting takes faith and dedication. Will you help us make a difference?
