I am an avid member of a vineyard church and these episodes are more than just planting a new church they encourage greater involvement in my community, through my church as God wants to plant change in our community. Many think of church planting only as going away to start new, but illuminated in the first full episodes your community may not know you down the road even after being there for years. Remember after you plant a garden you have to tend and keep it.
