Doing Ministry Alone Is No Fun!

I’ve tried doing ministry alone and it’s no fun! In fact I almost wanted to give up.  I’ve discovered that through connecting with other pastors and building divine flow relationships we can accomplish so much more and have fun doing it.  That’s one of the reasons why we host several pastors roundtables each year here at C3 Church.

I’m looking forward to hosting our roundtable here at C3 Church on Friday. We try to provide several gatherings a year for pastors to connect, to be encouraged so that we can continue to advance the cause of Christ together.  This roundtable will take on a unique flow as we will be discussing how we can spread the gospel in Europe through church planting.  There are some exciting things that are happening with the Association of Related Churches, Equip and with Europe Advance as it relates to church planting international. Our special guest is Pastor Sebastian VanWessen from Holland representing the Europe Advance leadership team. We will also have an opportunity to pray about how we can continue to connecting with pastors through our region (GA, SC, NC, VA, WV, DC area) I’m humbled to have pastors coming from all over North Carolina and South Carolina to join us. If you can’t make it don’t worry we are planning to do several each year. Here are the pastors that we know will be attending our roundtable:

  • Really enjoyed this meeting! Thanks so much, Pastor Matt, for hosting it! I believe this was a very strategic meeting for church planting in the South East of the US and for Europe.
