A Search for Reproducing Churches

My friends, since we began planning to plant Anchor Baptist Church in Los Angeles County, it has been my desire to plant more than one church. Not that I wanted to plant one church, move to a new location and plant another church, but I wanted Anchor to be a reproducing church. The goal has always been to plant one church that can reproduce other churches throughout our region.

I’m looking for some examples to learn from. That’s why I need your help.

My goal is to study the examples of churches that have reproduced other churches. Could you help me identify 10 churches that meet the following criteria?

  • Churches that planted at least 3 other churches in the last 25 years.
  • The new church plants have been in the same region as the reproducing church.

Sin, a little thing? Is it not a poison? Who knows its deadliness? Sin, a little thing? Do not the little foxes spoil the grapes? Doth not the tiny coral insect build a rock which wrecks a navy? Do not little strokes fell lofty oaks? Will not continual droppings wear away stones? Sin, a little thing? It girded the Redeemer’s head with thorns, and pierced his heart! It made him suffer anguish, bitterness, and woe. Could you weigh the least sin in the scales of eternity, you would fly from it as from a serpent, and abhor the least appearance of evil. C.H. Spurgeon

Persons are apt to flatter themselves that they are free and at liberty to spend whole evenings now at cards, at dice, or any diversion whatsoever, to pass away, as they call it, a tedious evening. They can do any thing now to pass away that, which is hastening as fast as thought: time is always upon the wing; it is no sooner present but it is past, and no sooner come but it is gone. And have we so much to do, and so little time to do it in, and yet complain of time lying heavy upon our hands?

Here’s a brief look at the first few months of Anchor Baptist Church!

We are extremely grateful to all of the churches that have supported this ministry with prayers and finances. God has and is using you to make a difference in Los Angeles County. We would not be able to do this work without your assistance! Thanks to your financial support, I’m able to dedicate my full time to the work of making disciples in our area. Thank you for this opportunity!

The church website has pictures from our Charter Sunday and videos of our baptisms.
