Am I Called to Plant a Church? This is a question that many of us in CTK have found ourselves asking. Whether we are a pastor who is considering leading a church plant or a member considering being a part of a core group. Church planting has been an integral part of the vision of CTK from the beginning. Part of the work of the church planting center is to help future pastors and church leaders to discern if God might be calling them to be personally involved in the planting of a church.
How we got connected to CTK
During our first year at Covenant Seminary in Saint Louis, my wife, Ally, and I began to think more seriously about the ministry context that we wanted to serve in. We knew we were interested in serving in an urban, secular city, though not sure about what that might practically look like for us. In the fall of 2014, we met Bob Sawyer, the director of the Christ the King Church planting center, at a ministry lunch he hosted at Covenant. Hearing about Christ the King’s “multi-congregational” church planting approach in Boston, piqued our interest in possibility of serving in Boston.
