What causes a church plant to fail?

There are two critical factors that are usually missing, focus and commitment; and this is not what most guru’s teach.

Focus on Christ and commitment to the call He gives, more of Him less of you.

We tend to plant churches to our self… That one’s pride gets in the way because we are not fully submitting to the Lordship of Christ. In the 10k churches we at ITW planted in 80 counties (I personally planted 3 in the US and a doz+ in Russia and a doz+ in s/c Asia) , in the last 30 years, a Ph.D. dissertation on it, I have found they fail and the pastor fails and their marriage suffers, when prayer is not the focus (in the home and in the church) and the heart is after power and not Christ….

Be blessed!
