Churches Planting Churches in Montana

Lee MerckAll Enews, Planting Team

As the Church Planting Team Leader, I have the privilege of working with pastors, churches, and church planters to spread the gospel and to plant new churches throughout Montana.

It is a big task to which we’ve all been called. The reality is that churches plant churches, and we cannot accomplish the mission effectively without your leadership and participation, as well as the participation and support of the wonderful people you shepherd. Montana’s churches are unique, diverse, and strategically placed by God, so they can take spiritual responsibility for neighboring communities, towns, cities, and even broader geographical regions.

Some of you are already doing this, and God is using you and your church in amazing ways. We as pastors and planters have a heart for God and desire to be used by Him far beyond our ability. God works in special ways through His people in local churches. One of the powerful ways He does this is by multiplying His work and planting other churches.

Check out the following video. Listen to how God used several local churches in Montana to start a work in Joliet. Pray about how God might have you and your church engage lostness in the area where He’s strategically placed you. If you would like to have a conversation about planting a church, please contact me at lmerck@mtsbc.org.
