Planting Two Churches: Reflection and Speculation

Justin Anderson is the lead pastor of Redemption Church in San Francisco, CA. He will be speaking at the upcoming Acts 29 Boot Camp in Orange County, CA about the lessons he has learned through planting two churches in very different parts of the United States. I am living the dream.

We have erred too often for the former to the neglect of the latter, presenting a Jesus that women relate to most closely. ... While we shouldn’t negate the importance of nurturing and safety, we need churches that ...

The Five Distinctives of Acts 29 | Part 5: Local Church is Missional

Acts 29 is a movement of church-planting churches—not a model or a style. What binds us together is our passion to see the name of Jesus made famous throughout the world.

The following is part five of a series highlighting each of these five distinctives. To find out more about these distinctives and Acts 29's church-planting work around the globe, join us for our next Boot Camp in Orange County, California on September 19-20, 2013.
