Get back to our roots to become a movement again

Tom Evans is the President of the North New South Wales Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, Australia Union, South Pacific Division. When he made this presentation at the eHuddle in 2017 he was the Associate Director for the North American Division Evangelism Institute and led the SEEDS Church Planting Conferences. In this presentation he talks about how church planting is the movement that will cause the momentum necessary for church growth. Church planting is an adventure that reveals the power of Christ through the miracles that happen during and after planting new churches. Church plants cannot happen through the efforts of pastors alone, Evans says, and stresses the importance of laypeople in reaching underserved demographics and small communities. His 5 movement steps to guide the North American Division to become a movement again offer practical advice for every church member to be an active part of church planting.
