If there are already lots of churches, why plant new ones?

his is the right kind of question. It assumes we are asking some other pivotal questions:

What is the most strategic use of resources to help people connect with God? 

What should we be doing to partner with God to reach our city?

These are great questions because it means that we are poised to take our time, our lives, our money and our passions and turn them towards God’s work in the world.

So, why should we plant new churches?

We should plant new churches for a few key reasons, I will paraphrase them from a couple articles by Tim Keller Why Plant Churches and Church Planting is What We Do.
