For most of us, the church planting process brings two churches into our lives:
1. The church we think we are going to plant.2. The church that actually gets planted.
It is the men who are able to successfully navigate the distance between these two churches that are still standing after the first few years.
I can't tell you how much time I’ve wasted in the first five years of our church plant comparing myself to others. If I could have preached like Piper or Chandler or led like Platt…the comparisons were endless—and deadly.
Good Guys, Bad Guys
Yes or no? Black or white? Football or Polo?
Most of us prefer a world in which the good guys wear white hats and the bad guys wear black hats, but that's usually not the case. The truth usually lies somewhere in between.
