Here is an interview of Bob Roberts a pastor and church planter by Mark Galli. I read this in the July 2007 issue of Christianity Today during lunch yesterday and I believe that it is a must read article particularly for those involved in pastoral ministry or church planting.
Bob Roberts has been involved in planting over 100 churches and is the senior pastor of Northwood Church in Keller, Texas. He proposes that for the church to be really alive and fulfilling its mission, local churches should be not only involved in ministry to the local community, but also actively involved in church planting and Globally in world missions. He encourages all of his church members to be involved in some form of outreach or another.
Some great ideas here that remind me of the church in the book of Acts. *Top
