WSJ: Church Planting is the Newest Missionary Field

Fred Barnes, executive editor of the Weekly Standard and frequent commentator on Fox News, has written a piece for today’s Wall Street Journal on a most unusual topic: church planting. As an orthodox Anglican whose church left the Episcopal Church in 2005, Barnes was challenged to help plant a church in Alexandria, VA. He recounts his experience in this article.

Why do young pastors desire to plant churches? “Planting and then leading a new church is an ideal option.” One Anglican minister who desired to serve a theologically conservative congregation opined, “In order to do that, you had to go out and do it yourself.”
