acts 29: Churches Planting Churches

Church planting is demanding work. Creating and sustaining gospel communities around the world requires relentless commitment to our great commissioning by Jesus to go and make disciples of all nations (Matt. 28:19).

Church planting is worthy work. We work for the glory of our King, anticipating the day when a great multitude “from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages” will stand before the throne loudly crying out, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” (Rev. 7:9–10).

Our labors include both victories and also defeats. And just as we encourage one another during trials, we rejoice together in times of triumph. We celebrate God’s grace in our church-planting endeavors with grateful hearts.

With me on the podcast today to talk about his trials and triumphs in 10 years of church planting is Eric Roseberry, lead pastor of City of God Church in Lafayette, Indiana. Eric is pursuing a PhD in New Testament at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He’s married and has four children.
