It’s Assessment Day for Sojourn Network, our church-planting network. Our hope during this Assessment Day is that we find the right people to fit into this network, so we can multiply the vision of seeing not just more churches, but better churches.
So what does that mean? It means that godly pastors and their wives have come to be assessed by Pastor Brian, Pastor Kevin, myself and other Sojourn Network leaders to see if they would be a good fit for partnering with us in our network. They’ve come from different areas of the U.S., from New York City to south Georgia.
We want these men to succeed in spreading the gospel and working with us to plant more churches. We certainly aren’t the only church planting network, which is one reason we do assessments. We desire candidates who will thrive in our ministry culture and who share our vision and values.
Pray for the four men undergoing assessment today, and pray for your pastors and all who are involved. From the start of Sojourn’s existence I’ve said that we desire to be a church that plants churches and multiplies itself. It’s exciting to see how God has been working through Sojourn Network, and to know that this is only the beginning.
And as I said Sunday, pray that God continues to raise up people around the world and from within our own midst — not just planters but all God’s people, and not just with giving but with going.
