"Church planting has grown in its scope, diversity and impact," says Ed Stetzer, director of research for Lifeway Research and leader of the study. "North American churches, networks and denominations are making church planting a growing priority. "Such emphases push the church closer toward a movement--where churches plant churches that plant churches across North America and the world."Leadership Network has a new study on the practice of church planting; very encouraging to us in the field!
