The church is beginning to reflect the diversity of the world around it.
Though this may seem like a daunting reality, it provides an incredible opportunity for the church to continue growing and thriving.
It's a chance for the church to take a more strategic approach to the changes and advance its mission—and church planting is a critical part of this approach. While it is not the only way to do this, it is vital to a church’s growth.
The new age of globalization, where our world is becoming more diverse and our culture is becoming more global, necessitates the church to focus on reaching the cultural boundaries that are differentially impacted by these changes.
In this episode, we are excited to hear from Pastor Sam Collier being interviewed by Modern Church Leader, who recently launched a church in Atlanta, GA, called Story Church. He will share a glimpse into how this church began and his vision for how the church will grow. He will also speak about the significance of multiculturalism in the church's growth.
“We think different, we come from different backgrounds, but we learn to celebrate what we do agree on.”
Church planting is a huge undertaking, so this is a great place to start if you're wondering where to begin!
By the end of this episode, you will learn:
- A little background on Sam's journey as a pastor
