We are currently developing web resources for our planting pathway. Feel free to check back on this page at a later date. If you would like to contact us directly, feel free to do so at our main website.
The goal of Pathways is the growth of the gospel. In the book of Acts, Luke makes it clear that this was his primary metric of success. Repeatedly, he references the spread of the gospel and the manner in which the Word increased and multiplied (Acts FIND REFERENCES).
For the gospel to grow to the ends of the earth, someone must take it there. The IMB’s Foundations document states it this way:
The heart of the mission God has given us is to be His witnesses (Acts 1:8), to proclaim repentance and forgiveness of sins in His name (Luke 24:47), and to make disciples of all nations and peoples on earth (Matthew 28:16–20). (Foundations, 23)
This cohort is designed to provide the competencies and spiritual formation necessary to serve faithfully in the ministry of planting other churches in Houston and across North America.
