Are You Being Called to Plant A Church?

A current phenomena across our country and around the Bay area is the rising number of young men who are considering church planting. But with this growing desire there are also common questions such as ‘Is my desire to plant a church realistic? Am I called to be a church planter? Do I have what it takes to plant a church?”

For many, these questions will remain unanswered. For many, questions such as these are left alone and will never be entertained. And the reason? It is easier to allow questions like these to merely float around in ones mind than it is to take some initial steps to have them answered. There is another way, however.

If you’re a guy who has these sorts of questions in your heart, has it ever occurred to you that these questions and the desire to plant a church are in your heart for a reason? I suspect they are! Could it be that God is the source?

Truth is, you’ll never know unless you investigate. Further, God usually leads us as we are on the move for Him; and so, why not get started?

We at the NorCal Network would be glad to help you along your way on this journey. Some of us have planted churches ourselves while some of us have led existing churches to re-launch. Others are planting now or are in the initial phase of forming a core planting team. But whatever our work for Christ at this time, one thing is true. We have all wrestled with questions like the ones you have; and each of us has had to come to grips with God’s call on our lives. We can help you answer these questions. In addition, we have years of pastoral and leadership experience among us.

And so let me ask you straight up. Are you being called to plant a church?

After reading through the web site, why not contact one of us. We are here to help prospective church planters and will eagerly answer any questions you may have; and if after some initial conversation, you want to investigate further, NorCal can help you move from where you are today trough assessment and on to form a core and plant a church-and all for the glory of Christ.
