The Colorado District sponsored a church planter training at Golden Bell Camp January 19-23. Twenty-one different pastors completed at least one track in the training sequence, some of them completing certified trainer training in addition to a core track. We were able to provide training in English and Spanish. It was a great time of enthusiasm and encouragement. The resounding theme was “We have to do this again so more of our pastors can experience this!”

We heard you loud and clear. Church Planter Training is coming again in September. Mark your calendars now for September 1 – 3. This is step one of our overall vision for training and equipping on the Colorado District and we want all of our pastors to experience at least one training event. More details will be coming in the weeks ahead. In the meantime, ponder the quote below:

“Hardly anything demonstrates the health of a congregation as much as the willingness – and ability! – to give birth to new congregations. The opposite is true as well. Hardly anything is a more clear indication of illness than structures which by design hinder church multiplication, or at best permit it as an absolute exception.”

Christian Schwarz, Natural Church Development (Carol Stream, IL: ChurchSmart Resources, 1996) p. 69.
