Learning from Albanian church planters

Tim Chester has been blogging about his recent experiences visiting church planters in the Balkans.

Here is some great advice from Albanian of all places (Side Note: Isn’t the church beautiful like that.)

“Invest in people not programmes.’

“What impacts people is not just what you say, but what you do.”

“Something that worked well for someone else may not work well for me. I am tired of people claiming ‘this is the way to success’. The lessons we should learn from them is this: they heard from God how they should work in their situation and we need, too, to hear from God how we should work in our situation.”

“Start each day with prayer. Don’t go anywhere without prayer.”

“We should not love a style or technique, but the people, the culture, the ministry, the gospel.”
