I have just returned (17th October) from Holland, Ireland, Belgium, France and Poland.
Here are a few highlights:
I was reminded again that VCI exists to ignite church planting networks and movements. VCI is a catalyst for new churches, networks and eventually movements.
I love what Ralph Moore says;
“Training pastors to see their churches as launch platforms for new churches is crucial for three reasons:
A. Christianity is shrinking in America, with church attendance being reduced by one percent per decade.
B. The "salt of the earth" factor is fading as the surrounding culture discounts our message.
C. New churches bring people to Jesus 4 times as fast as churches that are more than 10 years old.
Some say the trend in Europe is beginning to slightly rise. Remember though that the “salt of the earth” factor and “shrinking Christianity” was well embedded in Europe and couldn’t get much lower than it was!!! Though small it seems a slight rise is beginning to happen. May it continue.
Thank you for your prayers, support and encouragement. It is so valued.
