Many average-sized churches have assumed that they don’t have the resources or numbers to plant new churches.
But what if you don’t have to have a congregation of 1000+ to plant new churches?
Chasing after God’s vision for multiplication ministry, Community Evangelical Church in Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, has seen a disciple-multiplication vision turn into a church-multiplication vision and has witnessed the beginnings of multiple Fresh Expression churches while averaging 300 in worship each week.
You are invited to join CEC’s Lead Pastor and Associate Pastor of Missional Ministries, Mike and Matt, respectively, as they discuss some key strategies and share candidly about some mistakes that have been learning points in making multiplication culture a reality at CEC.
In this webinar Mike and Matt discuss…
