4 reasons why it's good to plant in coalition.


1. A Coalition for Church Planting (Together)


Evidence from around the world suggests that when churches work together in partnerships of various kinds, much more is achieved that when our resources, insights and planning operate in isolation. No single church, network or denomination has all that is required to make an impact on the cities and nations of our world. Creating coalitions of trust is an effective way of working together to achieve Kingdom change in our world.

2. Resources for Church Planting


Church planting can happen spontaneously or through strategic planning. In both cases the effectiveness of planting is enhanced when we have access to the resources of the recruitment of workers, training, coaching, mentoring, planning, mapping and research. Coalitions are able to help create a pool of resource that enable us to move faster and further with our church planting activities.

3. Intercultural Planting


The cities of our world, particularly in the west, are increasingly places that are home to many cultures, languages and faiths. Most large cities contain significant communities from more than 200 language groups. The children of those who have moved from other parts of the world are increasingly living alongside one another as intercultural groupings. Future planting needs to take seriously both the intercultural reality of the coming generation and the intercultural heart of the gospel itself.

4. The Next Generation


The West Midlands and Birmingham in particular, is recognised as an increasingly young city. That is partly because of the high birth rate of migrants. Most of the disciples of Jesus were young people. It is increasingly important that we see youth as those who need to receive the gospel and as bearers of the message - leaders in their own right. The coming generation need to be included as an integral and key component of our church planting strategy.
