David Fitch has a great post on the mythic figure of “church planter.” I’ve been on staff with three church plants in the past 15 years. That said… Fitch is right on target. I know it is a bit of a caricature, but his sketch of the church planter is on target and a little scary. It’s totally worth the time to read the blog post so have at it here: http://tinyurl.com/3wc7upu
