Leonce Crump and his Missional Community at Renovation Church talk about the joys and challenges of planting a church in a diverse neighborhood in Atlanta.
“We hold Sunday morning at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School to come together to celebrate God, to hear the preached Word, to sing His praises and at the same time know that’s not it. Sunday is not the end goal and it’s not the end game. The end game is living sent lives together in community moving toward Jesus’ Kingdom reign. Our mission is to glorify Jesus in renovating the city holistically through the gospel. That can’t just happen with a Sunday morning service. If we just wanted to plan a service we could do that, but the city would stay exactly the way that it is.”
