Thoughts on Why We Fail to Plant New Churches ➙

I found this particularly interesting in light of his argument that we're not raising up leaders. But I passed this on to my father who reacted harshly saying the whole system is broken. Raising up leaders in a broken system will only produce more broken-model churches. That is to say, the fundamental issue is the way the church is run, sitting in rows, being preached at. If this model is broken, it doesn't matter if you're planting new churches or starting new video campuses, you're working in a broken system.

Whatever the case it reminds me of something I wrote a while back, Leave Your Pulpit, Start a Podcast.
