Chewning: overseeing new church, new believers, old doctrines

Matt Chewning is a pastor and a church planter on the North Shore in Beverly.  He is one-of-a-kind for sure. But in many ways Chewning’s journey reflects the journey of all of our planters: with the job description comes a lot of responsibility.

Chewning’s one year-old church has grown. And it has done so in large part because NetCast Church is a body of faithful believers, living out a kind of real, authentic, gospel community that people long for and need.

And as visitors have come and heard the living Word preached from the pulpit, many of these visitors come to life by turning from sin and trusting in Jesus Christ.

And as these new believers learn more about the God and His Word, they have more questions; questions about the Gospel and this new heart they have received. And a lot of people might think the conversation stays right there. It does not.

Our planters are charged with loving and bringing new members of God’s family into the family of the church, into the body of Christ. And with that all pastors must be on-purpose about teaching things like believer’s baptism, the Lord’s Supper, church membership, stewardship, church discipline and so much more. And all this in New England to a group of people who more than likely are confronting these issues for  first time – ever.

So how does a church planter do that?

Every pastor is going to have his own process for teaching his congregation these issues. That teaching will always come first from the Word of God, through discipleship and through simply living these principles out in front of the congregation. But, beyond that, we can learn something from Chewning’s transparency and his fearless in-your-faceness.

  • For those in the worship service, and with titles like “Life & the Gospel,” “Jesus Is,” Christ gone wild,” “Sex: the Naked Truth,” to name a few, Chewning has opted to preach expositionally but inside series that connect folks’ real life questions to the fundamental truths of the Gospel.
  • As an online resource he recently posted a video Q & A Series called “Confessions of a Pastor” where he speaks briefly to questions among others like “Can you trust the Bible?,” and “Why do churches want my money?”
  • More recently, in response to questions about female leadership in the church, Chewning uses his Blog to post Women Leaders and Pastors at NetCast Church, a careful and thorough explanation of an often misunderstood topic.

That’s just Chewning. The question is what is you? How are you using using your platform for Christ to create a healthy church that will eventually multiply, and do the same, and do the same. Let us know what you are thinking. We appreciate your comments.

Ethnic Fellowship for Pastor’s Interested in Church Planting

 

Paul Kim retirement

 

Pastor Paul Kim will host this first fellowship at his home (254 Concord Avenue in Cambridge) at 8 a.m. with breakfast – on Saturday, March 17, 2012. The group is limited to 12 ethnic pastors at each fellowship. It is a monthly event starting with the 3rd Saturday in March and the 3rd Saturday each month thereafter.  Each pastor will take a turn at hosting the fellowship in their home.   

 

The focus will be on the Church Planting Movement in the GBBA and how we can network together. The pastor’s vision and his leadership is the key to Church Planting. Pastor Kim believes it will begin in Boston and it is up to us to challenge other associations in SBC to do likewise.

 

In December all participating ethnic pastors and their family members will celebrate at a church with a Christmas party with ethnic foods!

Dear Pastors,

If you as The Pastor will commit to:

1. Teach your people to prayer walk your community. (Randy       Sprinkle is available from BCNE for any help needed)

2. Train your people on Evangelism,  (Training help is available)

3. Pass out your invitations and door hangers.

 

You can go to the BCNE Website under Evangelism, sign up and BCNE will make $250 available to you to start your outreach programs for the Spring. These funds can be used for any outreach program for Evangelism, flyers, printing, movie showing, block parties, etc

BUT, YOU MUST SIGN UP.

There will be so much going on this year from NAMB & BCNE  for evangelism through events.  There is a great amount of help being offered that is geared to help you in church growth.  All this information can be found on the BCNE website.

Please take advantage of all that is available.

Please call us at the GBBA and let us know how we can help.

 

May The Lord Bless all you do for His Kingdom.
