I frequently receive requests to help others process through an apostolic approach to church planting among unreached people groups in North America. Today, I want to take the initiative and extend an invitation to mission agencies.
There are nearly 1,000 US and Canadian mission agencies that call North America home. Not all of these are sending missionaries into North America, but many are. In light of the movement of the peoples of the world, some of these agencies are considering involvement in North America.
Behind India and China, the United States is home to the third largest number of unreached people groups–Canada is home to the fourth largest number.
While the greatest needs for the multiplication of disciples, churches, and pastors are outside of the United States and Canada, the Divine Maestro has orchestrated the movement of the nations to our backyards (Acts 17:26-27).
Between now and December 31, 2017, I will host a three hour private consultation with three different mission agencies. The time will be spent discussing how the agency can be involved in reaching unreached people groups in North America through church planting.
There is no cost. No honorarium will be accepted.
The three hour meeting will be via video conference at an agreed upon date and time.
- All attendees must participate with an eagerness and willingness to seek the Spirit’s leadership for the future of their agencies.
- The agency must already be involved in church planting somewhere in the world.
- The agency must already be involved in reaching unreached peoples in North America OR planning to move into this area of ministry in the next 2 years.
- The 3 hour consultation will be open only to the senior/executive leadership of the agency.
- The agency president/CEO/Executive Director (or equivalent) AND Senior VP/COO/Senior Strategist (or equivalent) must attend.
- Up to eight other senior leaders may attend.
- All attendees must read Apostolic Church Planting and Strangers Next Door before our meeting.
Again, this is a free opportunity. This is a first-come-first-served opportunity for the first three agencies that contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This invitation is only good until June 21, 2017. I will follow up with each agency and will coordinate our calendars for the consultation to take place after June 21 but before December 31, 2017.
Spread the word, if you know an agency that would benefit from this opportunity.
