Ed Stetzer recently shared on The Exchange, a special section of Christianity Today, about the new SEND Institute, described as a think-tank on church planting. From the article:
The SEND Institute is a partnership between the NAMB and the BGC for mutual learning, collaborative thinking, and more. Together with the Church Planting Leadership Fellowship (CPLF), we will continue to gather leaders, but now we will also do so in ways that we learn from one another, provoke one another to love and good deeds, and see the gospel proclaimed through more and better church plants.”
Seems like exciting stuff. You can read the full article here or at the link below, are share your thoughts in the comments; has the time come for thought leadership to take a primary role in church planting?
