Here are the arguements against the current trend of church planting I’ve tried to elucidate in my previous posts. I’ll collect them here to provide a handy centeralized reference for future forays into this subject.
- Modern church planting is not found in Scripture
- The market for new churches is oversaturated.
- It is irresponsible and wrong to simply abandon failing churches.
- The supply of pastors exceeds market demands and it is wrong to continue adding to this surplus in human capital.
