History shows that outside of the Holy Spirit and the providence of God that the #1 reason new church plants fail is that they launch too soon.
1. IF you are from the area [like 5-10 years from the area]…you can cultivate quickly. 12-18 months.
2. If you are not, you might consider just living for 3+ years before ever beginning the work of planting.
But most of you will not, and you will more than likely fail apart from the Holy Spirit doing what He only He can do.
#1 book recommendation: “Church in the Making” by Ben Arment [Read it, and then see what I am talking about. It will take you 2-3 hours max to read, but it will change everything for you.]
