Why is Matt Chandler compelled by the Bible that the end game of missions and evangelism is always the establishment of a local congregation that is serious about the word of God and making disciples. In this breakout session, Chandler suggests that adoration for Christ leads to multiplication via evangelism and ultimately church planting. Any missions that doesn’t have as its end goal church planting is an exercise in futility. Rather than one ever increasing mega-church, God is after the planting of churches for his name. Join Matt Chandler here to learn about Acts29.
