Church Planting Trip 1

May 27, 2011 in Big Picture (Father's Heart) by CPM UK

A quick summary of Apostle Pauls 1st church-planting mission as found in the New Testament-

(cross referencing the letters he sent to the churches he planted outlined in Acts)

1st Church-Planting Trip (Cyprus + Galatia/Turkey)

Paul and Barnabas were sent by the Holy Spirit through representatives of the Church in Antioch (Syria).

John Mark joined them as their assistant

They travelled through the whole of Cyprus preaching in every town.

They then moved throughout the region of Galatia (modern Turkey).

John Mark went back to Jerusalem so just Paul and Barnabas from here on in

They pass through Perga, then onto Iconium, Pisidia Antioch, Lystra and Derbe

In each town, they preach the message of Jesus, model a new way of living and stay for a while.

In each town, a few believe and are baptized, immediately forming simple churches which meet to build one another up with Jesus at the centre.

After Paul and Barnabas first church-planting/missionary trip at least 4 churches were planted. This was in the space of about 2 years
