I’m inspired by my friend Jon Overstreet, who is pastor of Beaver Baptist Church. It’s great to have the camaraderie of another Baptist pastor who shares my passion for the doctrines of grace. And another thing I admire about Jon is his passion for church planting, even as he counts the cost of what that will mean for his small congregation. They are a church of about 40 folks, and they are planning very seriously to send out a group of those folks to begin a new congregation in one of the other small towns in their area.
You don’t have to be a mega-church to be involved in church planting. Let’s cultivate the vision and attitude that will pursue church multiplication in the Greater Pittsburgh region.
