“Plant!” Church Planting Conference

In 1991 I had the privilege of participating in a church plant in Charlotte, NC. It was a thrilling, humbling, faith-stretching, unpredictable adventure that I think every leader should go through at least once.

That’s why I’m excited about the Sovereign Grace Ministries Plant! Conference, taking place next month. I have the joy of leading the songs we’ll be singing. Here’s the relevant info:

PLANT! | March 24-26, 2011

Location | Covenant Fellowship Church, Glen Mills, PA

Cost | $99 (day & session passes available)

Who Should Go | Church planters, pastors, pastors who desire to see their church plant churches, members of churches who desire to be a part of planting a church some day, worship leaders and musicians who are part of a church plant or would like to be some day

Why Go To PLANT! | You’ll have the opportunity to spend three days listening to and dialoguing with church planting thinkers and doers from different denominations and movements, all motivated to plant and build churches rooted in the gospel.

Teachers include Darrin Patrick and Daniel Montgomery from Acts 29, Mark Dever and Mike McKinley from 9 Marks and the SBC, Tim Witmer from the PCA, CJ Mahaney, Dave Harvey, Pete Greasley, Craig Cabaniss from Sovereign Grace Ministries. Shai Linne will also be teaching a seminar and putting on a concert one evening. Talk about a diverse group!

Here’s a video of Dave Harvey explaining why he’s excited about the conference:

If you’re part of a church plant or think you might one day participate in one, I think you should consider coming to Plant!

    Sounds great. Would this conference be applicable for missionaries hoping to plant a church abroad (and leave it to be run by the local believers)?

    I assume it will be mostly men coming. Would you encourage husbands and wives to come together? Are they planning anything to be aimed at the wives, and if not, would they find it helpful to attend?

      Matt, while nothing is planned that’s specifically aimed at the wives, they’ll still benefit from the conference, and about 10% of the attendees are women. I think it would be great for husbands and wives to come together.

    Looking to become a church-planter after graduating from Biola University with a degree in Intercultural Studies. Again, another event that I wish I could have attended. Come to Socal!
