A word from the school leader to you:

Should You, Could You…Would You?
“Waves crashed onto the continents, advancing inland until all the nations were covered.” God gave Loren Cunningham an amazing vision back in 1960. Loren said, “As I watched, the waves became young people of all races…going from house to house. Helping the lonely and the hungry. Caring for people everywhere they went…”

Would these waves result in fellowship being established in areas where none existed before? In the 1980’s this became a big question for our mission.

Planting churches among the unreached – I wonder if you should.


Church Planting is Biblical:
• Floyd McClung wrote, “It is essential we recognize the New Testament does not speak of just winning ‘Sheep’ but also forming them into ‘flocks’…Church planting is a fulfillment of God’s desire to gather (His people) into kingdom communities.”

Church Planting is Urgently Needed Among the Unreached.
• About three billion people in the world do not yet know Jesus Christ. Almost two-thirds of them have no viable church in their culture – no one in their midst to share the Gospel with them. The vast majority live within the “10/40 window”, spanning from West Africa through East Asia.

Church planting is Essential to Missions Strategy.
• Peter Wagner, considered by many to be the foremost authority on church growth told us, “The best method under heaven for evangelism is church planting. There never was a better method and there never will be.”

Church Planting is “the Word of the Lord”
• As a mission, we also heard God’s voice in prayer. The Holy Spirit stirred YWAMers to commit them to pioneer church planting. In obedience and faith, teams were formed and launched.

Once you know you should plant churches, I wonder if you could plant churches.

Knowing you should, aware you could, the next thing to do is to ask if you would come to attend the next CP Course in YWAM Muizenberg, Cape Town.
