There was a great turnout for the church planting workshop taught by Dan Nichols, Ryan Frank, and Luke Johnston. Dan planted Restored Church in Wilkes Barre, Pa., five years ago. Restored is a thriving church that has seen nearly 100 adults come to Christ and be baptized since opening in 2013. Ryan and Luke planted Involve Church in Nampa, Idaho. The church was launched in September 2015 and continues to grow, with more than 100 people engaged on a regular basis.

The workshop focused on the philosophy of each church and how each one implemented that philosophy as it was established, with a primary emphasis on evangelism, discipleship, and the use of technology to enhance communication with those inside and outside the church.

There was plenty of interaction with workshop participants who came from several different states and countries. We are grateful for Dan, Ryan, and Luke and their vision for reaching lost people through new church plants! You can learn more about their ministries at Involve Church and Restored Church.
