Church Planting

"The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labour." – 1 Corinthians 3:8

The DNA of God's global Church includes the reproduction of believing communities in every nation. Thus, in everything we do, our aim and passion is to see churches formed and self-reproducing, especially in places where there are few or no churches today.

From Australia to Spain, from Brazil to Algeria, how we go about this is as varied as the people we seek to reach.

Church planting is long-haul ministry that calls for vision, commitment, flexibility, patience and sensitivity to spontaneous opportunity. In OM, this often means working hand-in-hand with national churches that have a specific vision to establish new fellowships in particular areas. It also involves training in missions.

There is intentional, systematic sowing of God's Word that can be as open as literature distribution, public meetings and events, or more discreet through the use of cutting-edge technologies to help establish fellowships despite cultural opposition. As people come to Christ, they are discipled to grow in their faith and develop into leaders of new faith communities, no matter where they're planted.

This is the rewarding part: You may not see waves of spiritual response, but you will have the privilege of helping develop new fellowships and training the people God has chosen for His Church. If you want your faith to stick and impact others, church planting is as basic as it gets.

Prepare the ground. Plant and water the seed. Watch God grow it.
