I’m very moved and moti­vated by what I see the Rebuild Net­work (therebuildinitiative.org) doing to plant churches in urban areas. But there’s more to them than plant­ing, and there’s some­thing to learn from them in all churches who want to focus on dis­ci­ple­ship and mission.

Here’s a video that tells the story of the first church they planted. I just love this.

On Decem­ber 15, 2007, 25 fam­i­lies made the com­mit­ment to move from Den­ton, TX to Atlanta, GA to plant a church that was in the city, for the city, and looked like the city. It became the Rebuild Network’s first church plant—Blueprint Church.
