9Marks Journal (Summer 2017) on Church Mergers and Plants

The latest issue of the 9Marks Journal, available from here in various formats, is devoted to the topic of ‘Church Mergers and Plants’.

In the Editor’s Note, Jonathan Leeman and Alex Duke write:

‘Church mergers and church plants represent good news and bad news. The bad news is that it seems more and more churches are declining and in need of a restart. Church plants represent the good news: we have a bourgeoning supply of young pastors who desire to give themselves to the raising up and shepherding of God’s flock. And because we have more prospective pastors than open pulpits, we plant churches. Praise God for this “problem”!’
