Church Planting in an Uncertain Time
By Mark Dorminy & Naomi Annandale, PHD
New congregations are one of the most effective ways to bring people into the Christian faith. Yet planting churches can seem like an overwhelming project in a time of great uncertainty – a time like the one the United Methodist Church is experiencing.
To determine how church planting is progressing at this time of great uncertainty, Discipleship Ministries surveyed veteran planters and congregational developers about the state of planting in their areas, factors affecting planting, plans for planting and other topics related to the development of new congregations.
