A Thousand and One Ways: New Faith

There really is no one way to plant a church.  You can use the "traditional" method where a pastor comes into a community and starts from scratch, you could start a Sunday School in a neighborhood and grow something that way, or you could run a coffeehouse/church.

As Disciples, we believe in sharing the Good News of Christ with everyone in as many ways as we can.  So, how do we do that here in the Upper Midwest?

Like I said, there are many ways to plant a church and over the next few posts we are going to see about a thousand and one ways.  The Presbyterian Church (USA) has a new initiative called 1001 Worshipping Communities, which as the name suggests, aims to plant 1001 new faith communities over the next 10 years.

We are showing you this to help plant a seed and maybe to give some of you ideas on how to share Christ in the Upper Midwest.  Could we see a version of these unique churches sprout in Iowa City or Mankato or Grand Forks?

Here's the first video in the series on New Faith Church in South Carolina.
