Church Growth

Acts 14:23 When they had appointed elders for them in the various churches, with prayer and fasting they entrusted them to the protection of the Lord in whom they had believed.

“They entrusted them to the protection of the Lord in whom they had believed.”

Wow!!

Really?!?

They actually ‘entrusted’ them? They didn’t give them any reading materials? No “Next Steps” booklets?

Surely they at least put them on their mailing list?!? Because the context indicates that they left them almost immediately.

Paul obviously had a lot to learn about church planting and growth.
