When I was in the early stages of pondering the church plant I’m currently working in, my coach asked me a series of five questions that, over the course of months, helped me think through what my church plant should look like.

Over the next five blog entries, I’ll be sharing those questions with you, telling you how I processed them in my context, and asking you to reflect on how they might apply to your context. It’s okay if you don’t have answers for all of them yet. But start thinking this coming week about ways you might address these questions in your setting.

If you have additional questions that have been especially helpful to you along these lines, please contribute them here as well. We can all learn from one another as we shape and focus our ministries.
