Church Planter 3
Please note that the notes on this blog are for the church planter in the USA or on the foreign mission field. Though there are major differences between starting a church on the mission field and in the USA the basic areas are all the same. The work load is going to be very similar. The disciplined missionary will be a real church planter. It can be easy when you are a missionary to settle for doing less because your support comes in whether the church grows or not but you will certainly not want to do that. No matter where you are you will have to work like your life depends on it. Get a schedule and a plan and work them. The process is your responsibility and the product is God's. You do what you are supposed to and trust God for the results. Numbers should never be the goal of your ministry. They will simply be the result.
