A Strategy for Planting Churches

Preached by Pastor Phil Ortego

We want to be known as a Healthy Church Plant that Plants healthy churches.


1.) Identifying the right Leadership.

13 Now in the church at Antioch there were prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen, a close friend of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. (Acts 13:1)

As they were worshiping[a] the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Then after they had fasted, prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them off. (Acts 13:2-3)

2.) Deciding upon the right Location.

So being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they went down to Seleucia, and from there they sailed to Cyprus. Arriving in Salamis, they proclaimed the word of God in the Jewish synagogues. They also had John as their assistant. When they had traveled the whole island as far as Paphos, they came across a sorcerer, a Jewish false prophet named Bar-Jesus. (Acts 13: 4-6)

3.) Implementing the right Logistics.

Arriving in Salamis, they proclaimed the word of God in the Jewish synagogues.

14 They continued their journey from Perga and reached Pisidian Antioch. On the Sabbath day they went into the synagogue and sat down.

14 In Iconium they entered the Jewish synagogue, as usual, and spoke in such a way that a great number of both Jews and Greeks believed.

4.) Communicating the right Launch.
