Believe it or not, there was a time when the church you are in now was nothing more than a dream in someone's mind! But whoever it was that started it could never have done it alone - others had to help. In fact, the EFCA itself started as a church planting movement. Even our mission statement begins with the word "Multiply." So in this episode, Andrew Hoffman, EFCA Director of Church Multiplication, walks us through how church planting leaders from across the nation have come together to produce the Reach Network: the most strategic national church planting effort in decades for the EFCA. You'll hear the story of how God put together a new multiplication team out of a terrible tragedy, and how men and women across districts are working together to produce systems that are state of the art for assessing, coaching, and training new planters. Finally, you'll learn how you can be a part of it, because this is an "all hands on deck" effort. Andrew and his family planted a church fifteen years ago in Berkeley, CA, and no matter where you are in ministry, you can learn from his experience.
