Last Sunday our church-planting team met to pray and begin strategic-planning for the church plant in Cartaxo. First, we studied the Scripture to review the essential elements of all churches. Then we broke into three groups – men, women, and kid missionaries – to brainstorm ways that we could build relationships with people in order to introduce them to the Gospel. For homework this week, each of us must come up with two additional methods of starting and building relationships for the sake of the Gospel. I look forward to hearing everyone’s ideas next Sunday.
