Sometimes God moves in ways that we couldn’t have imagined before. Sometimes we see separate movements coming together to form a story. We see this happening right now in the Sub-Saharan African region of NewThing.
Through strategic partnerships in Uganda, Kenya, and Nigeria, NewThing churches have planted 265 churches as a result of working together in Catalyst Communities across the region over the last two years.. Additionally, leaders have committed to planting hundreds more churches over the next couple years.
Regional Director Matt Millar says it like this in his latest update, “The Lord is writing a magnificent story with what is happening in Sub-Saharan Africa. The months of August and September were months that have been packed with events that have resounded that truly God is doing a “New Thing” among us here.” We can truly see this happening! The Spirit of God is clearly at work, bringing to fruition the prayers and preparation of faithful men and women.
Between Leading A Reproducing Network trainings, Catalyst Communities, and fellowship with church leaders across country and linguistic borders, amazing things are happening! When leaders are put together with a common mission to reach God’s people, we see that God’s dream is bigger and more expansive than anything we could accomplish on our own. We are truly better together!
We at NewThing are so excited to highlight the work of these faithful leaders and give praise to God for that fruit as more and more people find their way back! May we be encouraged by what is happening to dream bigger dreams and work more closely than ever to provide opportunities for church planting to spread to every tribe, nation, language, and town.
