This week, Anthony D. Bobo, Jr. (Senior Associate, The Joseph Factor Group) was a guest at the ARC Launch Intensive in Birmingham, AL. The ARC Launch Intensive is for church planting couples who are on their journey with the association to launch a church.
On ARC’s (Association of Related Churches) website they share “We are an association of relational churches working with church planters and church leaders to provide support, guidance and resources to launch and grow life-giving churches.” “ARC’s model has been proven through the launch of hundreds of churches, with large launch day attendance and long-term success that exceeds national averages. When you choose to launch with ARC, you have access to all the resources that make this possible.”
Bobo attended as the Plant4Harvest, Harvest Institute, Director. He talks about the ARC Launch Intensive, “It was an eye-opening experience to be a guest at the training. It made me realize (even more) the importance of relationships and resources when planting a church. It also allowed me to get a better understanding of the “ARC Launch Large” model and other aspects of a sustainable model for church success.”
Plant4Harvest and ARC are discussing partnership. Both are seeking ways to launch churches, equip leaders of color, and impact this world for the kingdom of God.
We anxiously await and work to see what God will do among us.
