Discerning God's Calling to Plant Churches

Back to all sermons Legacy

Date: September 23, 2018

Speaker: Jay O'Brien

Series: Legacy

Scripture: Acts 16:6–16:15

Church planting reminds us of our core calling to make disciples of all people


Matthew 28 "18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go [on the way] and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”




God calls people, not just a person, to plant churches


- we all need authority

- we need different perspectives

- we need to raise up new leaders

- we need different gifts and abilities




How is God calling me to invest in his work?


- Everyone is called to speak and live the gospel

- Creation & Re-creation - How has God made me?

- Providence - What has God given?

- Redemption - How has God graciously worked?




How is God calling us to invest in his work?


- Leaders - Who can we equip to send?

- Place - Where can we send them?

- Time - When is the right time to send them?
