It is great to be able to talk about Church Planting with other church planters, but it is even better when you can mix both experienced church planters with seminary students. This past weekend the IBSTE seminary in Barcelona hosted the two day church planting forum at which several of us church planters presented several topics. It was a special joy for me to have my son-in-law BJ Whitaker sharing the sessions with me. The picture above was taken when he was giving his talk on “The relationship between church planting methodology and the Holy Spirit in the Bible.” I was especially touched when one student came to me at the end and thanked us for coming and sharing about the need for church planting in Spain. “I have been dedicated to my studies for 4 years but now the Lord has made plain to me what I should be involved in when I leave here in a few months.” Maybe we dont have more church planters because we dont intentionally ask the Lord of the harvest for more of them.
