Acts 29: Churches Planting Churches

As church-planting pastors, we know the importance of a healthy marriage. It’s right that we consistently ensure our ministry marriages are healthy.

But there’s also the danger of assuming that every pastor will be married. A godly single man—who has the character traits outlined in the pastoral epistles—is no less qualified than a godly married man. So we must equip the single man for ministry just as much as we do the married man.

As Sam Allberry has observed, “If marriage shows us the shape of the gospel, singleness shows us its sufficiency.” So what does singleness look like in church planting? To help us think about some of the unique challenges—and opportunities—that being single affords, I’m excited to have Hunter Beaumont with me on the podcast today.

Hunter is the lead pastor of Fellowship Denver Church in Denver, Colorado. He also serves on the Acts 29 U.S. West Network leadership team, and he’s on the board of the Denver Institute for Faith and Work.
