We, the regional leaders of PlantMidwest, blog here regularly with the hope of equipping you in your efforts to plant biblical, missional churches. With over 100 years of collective church-planting experience, we write about the gospel, life, and church planting, but we don’t pretend to have it all figured out. We do, however, hope our successes and our failures might help you keep learning and growing during the months between our quarterly gatherings. Reading this blog is also a great way to stay connected to the ever-changing news and events of PlantMidwest.
