Toward Becoming a Sending Church
Posted on July 15, 2021 8:00 AM by Mark Snowden
All CABA churches should be working toward be a sending church. Three CABA pastors and I have been in touch with a church planter in South Asia for the past year. We haven’t been able to travel, so we have met monthly via Zoom. There are other creative ways to serve on mission, too. A deaf interpreter at FBC Seaman where Boyd Lacy pastors, has spent the last six months discipling a new believer who is deaf via Zoom and now she is teaching the same lessons back to her.
What should you be looking for when you connect with a missionary church planter? Here are a few ideas:
:: Some orientation to the missiology and strategy driving the work
:: Advice for mobilizing more workers once back home
:: If this is a second trip or more, then connect with a local church planter for follow-up monthly via Zoom.
Contact me if you’re in a church with limited resources and want to collaborate with another church on mission. I’ll be glad to train or connect you!
