On the plane to Texas last week I read Rick McKinley's article, "Leading the Calling and Conversion of Your Core Group." The article is intended for church planters, but it's also helpful for pastors and other church leaders.
I hope pastors realize that church planting resources are not just for church planters. All churches should be planting churches. But even more, the "base jumping" faith of planters is contagious. We need it.
