#40inthefall – Recruiting Closes
We’ve got great news – #40inthefall has been accomplished and our recruiting efforts are now closed for the Fall 2016 class! Earlier in the year we reported to you that we were going to go all out and start recruiting our biggest class to-date. We wanted to step out in faith and ask God to send us more godly, gifted men then we’ve ever had before. So we set a goal to get 40 men into the training center (that’s more than 2x our normal class size!) and started working and praying toward that end.
After months of prayer, conferences, meetings, interviews, and assessments we have sent out 40 letters of acceptance (and have multiple qualified men still remaining in our pipeline!) and are now preparing for their arrival. This is a huge answer to prayer – #40inthefall is another example of God’s faithfulness to both his promises and to our ministry.
We’ve built a short profile for the #40inthefall below in order to introduce them to you. We ask that you would pray for each of these men and their families. This is a huge commitment and each family has stepped out in faith. Pray for us too–we recognize that God has entrusted us with great responsibility and want to honor him in all things. Pray also for God to open doors for gospel ministry all over the world and that he would lead each church planter to the right location.
Finally, just because recruiting for the Fall 2016 class has ended doesn’t mean we’ve stopped looking for church planters. As a matter of fact, we already recruiting for next year’s class. If you want to plant a church and find yourself in alignment with our vision of what makes a vertical church, we need to talk! Find our more here.
