Church Planting: Out of Joy the Church Multiplies

Speakers: Matt Chandler Year: 2016 Session: Breakout Session

Join Matt Chandler as he reviews the losses his church has taken for the sake of church planting and how those losses are actually joyous gains. Why should the end of evangelism or missions be the establishing of a healthy bastion of gospel light or, in other words, a church? In this breakout session, Matt Chandler discusses the work the Lord is doing through brothers his church has raised up and the beauty of seeing the gospel go forth.
