Can Mainline Protestants Still Plant Churches
...and do they want to?
On Easter Sunday a congregation in south Minneapolis held its last worship service after 105 years. This closing has a lot of meaning for me because it was the church that I interned at when I was in seminary. Mainline Protestant churches seem to be closing at a faster clip than their evangelical counterparts. Can more progressive faith traditions still plant churches?
I recently talked to Paul Moore, the pastor of Chain of Lakes Presbyterian Church in Blaine, Minnesota. Working through the Presbytery of the Twin Cities Area, he helped to plant this new church in the Northern Twin Cities suburbs over 10 years ago and the church is finally building its own church building. We talked about the challenges of planting new churches these days and the future of church planting within Mainline Protestant churches.
