ACTION BOX Fertilizer for growing a church movement: you

RICHMOND, Va. (BP)–Only God can start true church-planting movements. But he can use missionaries — and you — as fertilizer.
As catalysts for church-planting movements, missionaries use these approaches. So can you and your church:
1) Ask God to give your church a vision for reaching a particular people group lost without Christ.
2) Develop a passion for them. Ask God, “What’s it gonna take to reach this people?” Be ready to act when he answers.
3) Recruit a committed prayer network for your target people in your church and beyond.
4) Network with International Mission Board missionaries and others committed to reaching your target people.
5) Mobilize volunteers, teams and resources to help evangelize your people. Remember: whatever it takes.
To learn how your church can adopt an unreached people group or an unevangelized area, contact Al Gilbert at the International Mission Board by calling 1-800-999-3113, ext. 1504, or by e-mail at [email protected].
