Church Plant Update

“A new year a new church.”

These days I find myself repeating that phrase a lot. 2010 marks a really important milestone in the life of our new church “Restoration”. Why you might ask. Well, this is the calendar year that, Lord willing, we plan to see a new church birthed in Port Orange, Florida.

January is a big month for us and a great deal is going on. I’d like to use this post, and the ones that follow, as an announcement board to get you up to speed on where we are and where we are heading.

So, here it goes.

1. The Core Team- The core team is what we call the team that will be working with me to start the new church. To date, we are seeing a very high commitment level from quality people. What this means for the new church is that God is really providing faithful, gifted people who are excited about the task at hand.

2. Gathering– Gathering is the term used to describe how and when the core team will meet with each other, and eventually people from our respective communities. These gatherings will be used to equip the core team for the work of the new church, and will provide opportunities to develop friendships with those who are working together to start the new church. Our first gathering event is explained under the 4th item in this update.

3. Visibility– January also marks a significant change in how much and often we plan to cast vision about the plant before Christ Community Church (The Mother Church planting us). We hope to find and develop a second group of people for our core team. We expect to see this happen as people hear how God is working in the lives of those serving Restoration’s community.

4. A date to remember– On January 24th, right after the second worship service, Steve Ogne (our church planting coach) will be talking to our core team about church planting. Anyone who is interested, or has questions about the new church should plan to attend this event. We’ll be providing lunch.

As always, feel free to ask any questions you have about Restoration on these posts.
