One of our responsibilities here in the Philippines is to serve in church planting consultancy. NTM has over 35 church planting works in the Philippines, and we are involved with about half of them. This involvement looks different in every situation.
This is a picture of a recent meeting we had with a new church planting team. Along with myself and the church planting team, we also had several other consultants in the meeting. This church planting team consists of a German family and a Filipino family. This week they will be moving their families to a new location with the goal of eventually planting churches in that area.
This is a huge undertaking for this team. There are many things for a new church planting team to consider, and this is where church planting consultants can help the team think through the important issues and connect them with other missionaries or consultants who can help them.
Please pray for us as church planting consultants, that we would be able to help and encourage all the church planting teams we work with. Please also pray for this new team starting out this week. They have a long, exciting road ahead of them.
