Here is my sermon in 10 tweets, “The Anatomy of a Church Planting Venture," Acts 18:1-11 1/ Wherever God’s people went, they invited others into a relationship with God and with God’s people.
2/ The first thing Paul did when entering a city wasn’t to go to a synagogue, it was to look for a job.
3/ When Paul planted a church, the people in those churches didn’t just come from the synagogue, they came from his vocational network.
4/ When your identity is in Christ, you will eventually be identified with Christ where you work.
5/ In a sense we are all “tentmakers,” on mission wherever we live and work.
6/ Acts 18:4 - “he reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and tried to persuade Jews and Greeks”
7/ What may feel uncomfortable to talk about in the workplace (uncomfortable for everyone) is natural at a church or similar location.
8/ Our closest friends and family are often the hardest to reach, but most people are reached by their closest friends and family.
9/ "What kind of person am I if I don’t do what God laid on my heart to do?"
10/ "Mike, don't neglect the spiritual life of your son."
