Meet a Church Planter: Eric Roseberry in Lafayette, IN
Acts 29: Tell us about your calling to plant.
Eric: From the time I was in college my wife and I felt called to church planting. At that point we began to pray that God would give us wisdom and calling as to when and where. Last February through a series of prayer and spiritual counsel we decided that it was the right time, and that Lafayette was definitely the place.
Acts 29: How did you become involved with Acts 29? What have been the biggest benefits of being in the network?
Eric: We were introduced to Acts 29 by listening to Pastor Mark weekly in college. For me, as a younger guy, it has been invaluable to have so many planters around me for advice and encouragement. There are so many land mines that I've avoided by having men in the network genuinely interested in our plant.
Acts 29: What advice do you have for men who are wrestling with the decision to plant?
Eric: 1. Pray for wisdom 2. Make sure your wife is 100% on board 3. If you can imagine doing anything else with your life it might not be time. Most guys I know that have planted and done it well wouldn't be happy doing anything else.
