I registered for ARC's (Association of Related Churches) Church Planting training program 1.0 The Basics this week.
I'm excited to get this training started. Cara and I discussed trying to raise the support to pay for the cost, but decided that the initial investment on our part would display some initiative and help keep the momentum going.
The first session was a good reminder about how important prayer and fasting is.
My first take away was that I really need to ramp up my prayer life.
I also need to recruit prayer partners. I've already got my first few signed up here. My first goal is to get a solid group of ten.
It was also challenging yet encouraging to hear that church planting is a spiritual battle, not just a practical one.
