The Children of Israel had been delivered from slavery out of Egypt, and as God led them with a cloud by day and fire by night, they had experienced His love, patience and provision, time...

Six things every church planter needs to know, before they plant.

Know that God called you to plant a church. If you are planting a church because you’re frustrated with how your last situation went down. If you are planting a church because some people around you said you should. If you are planting a church because you think someday you’ll be in Outreach Magazine.
