Spurgeon On Church Planting

Saw this on the National Center for Family Integrated Churches website.

Charles Spurgeon speaks of sending out small groups of people in order to plant churches. This is such a blessed work that we pray will find success throughout the land,
"It is with cheerfulness that we dismiss our twelves, our twenties, our fifties to form other Churches. We encourage our members to leave us to found other Churches; nay, we seek to persuade them to do it. We ask them to scatter throughout the land, to become the goodly seed which God shall bless. I believe that so long as we do this, we shall prosper. I have marked other Churches that have adopted the other way, and they have not succeeded."
A Sermon Delivered On Sunday Morning, April 23, 1865, By C. H. Spurgeon, At The Metropolitan Tabernacle, Newington.

Church planting is one of the Pillars of the Church of Charlottesville. With the Lord's leading and help, it is our desire to equip and raise up men to go forth and plant churches. We seek not only to have a network of churches that are local, but to aid in planting churches in other areas that will develop their own local networks of churches.
