Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
Church planting is hard. Very hard. No, extremely hard. But no one ever told that to Trinity Jordan when he and his wife set out to plant Elevation Church fifteen miles north of Salt Lake City, Utah. What started with three families and a dog named Carson meeting in a house has now grown into multiple house churches and two public gathering locations, with more being developed. But those early days (well, even the current ones, too) would not have been so tough had Trinity been forewarned and well-armed to face the challenges ahead. A new generation of church leaders have begun planting churches in droves and at breakneck speed, which is wonderful in and of itself, but with this movement comes the need to understand all the pitfalls, hurdles, and challenges often overlooked. "Jesus Never Said to Plant Churches" reveals the secrets on church planting so leaders will have the insight and confidence to complete their mission to see God's glory reflected in changed lives.
