Church Planting In Key Cities and Towns
By planting seed churches in key cities and towns that will in turn multiply themselves, spreading outwardly to other cities and towns. In the book of Acts, the early church had been actively sending out key leaders to start churches in the main cities or towns by preaching the Gospel to the Jews and Gentiles. Some of the churches pioneered included the church of Ephesus, Thessalonica, Philippi, Colosse and Corinth. (Mat 16:18, Eph 3:10-11).
Church Planting through "Tent-making"
We uphold this stand and each team member enters a city or country through tent-making. The church planter or therein name "tentmakers" will support themselves through their vocation as they serve God on the mission field. Paul was a tentmaker not because there was no other option, but because it was the best option to reach many segments of society. He wanted to be an example of how a Christian lives in this world. He wanted to earn the right to be heard based on his lifestyle, the careful building of relationships, being where the people were and working side by side with them (Acts 18:3).
