Stop funding church plants

David Fitch has a most excellent article - Stop Funding Church Plants and Start Funding Missionaries: A Plea To Denominations. I couldn't agree more, and have many thoughts to add which I may or may not do once I have some time (and vacation is over). At any rate, I wanted to remember this, and hopefully some of my churchy friends will read this too. :)

Interesting, and I concur (mostly), although I also think "Bob" in the comments raises some good points.

It also fits in nicely with some of the points in the book I'm OK - You're Not: The Message We're Sending Nonbelievers and Why We Should Stop, which resonated with me BIG time when I read it a few years back. If you haven't read it, I'd recommend it. It's fun, challenging and a quick read (and if you get the Kindle version you can read it on your PC even if you don't have a Kindle, and it's cheaper :).
