10 Reasons to Join a Church Plant

This post was originally posted at The Resurgence. This is a follow up to 10 Reasons NOT to Join a Church Plant. In the previous post we mentioned the seriousness and dedication of being a part of a church plant. These 10 reasons further highlight the commitment and passion for those wanting to get involved in a church plant.

  1. If you want to see Jesus do something new and are sick of the status quo.
  2. If you dream of being part of something bigger than yourself.
  3. If you want to get into a fight/enter a battle for the kingdom of Christ.
  4. If you feel a constant itch to see people who don’t know Jesus come to know Jesus and you believe church planting is the best way for the gospel to advance.
  5. If you want to give your time, money, energy, and talents to starting something new and you want to make sacrifices to see a mission to succeed.
  6. If you fully support the vision, mission, doctrine, and leadership of a church plant.
  7. If you want your faith to grow and you want God to fundamentally meddle with and change your life.
  8. If you want to love your city.
  9. If you want to watch God move in ways you never imagined and you want an adventure (with all it’s discomfort and risk).
  10. If you’re not afraid to bank your life on Matthew 16:18 (“I [Jesus] will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it”).
