“It takes one to know one” is certainly true of church planters. Church planting is hard work. How great for a church planter to talk with a church-planting comrade who understands the ups and downs! A new season of an online church-planting cohort will take place the second Thursday of each month. You can jump into the cohort at any time. The next online meeting is March 13. Contact Scott Greening,, to register.
