Remember my trip to India in January 2015? After we returned, Pastor Benjamin Chellapandian (“Pastor Benny”), of India Gospel League (IGL) came to America during February, 2015 to visit several churches. We invited him to speak at our fellowship. Benny is the Director of Training and Leadership Development for IGL, overseeing about 7,000 church planting pastors in rural India and Sri Lanka, who have collectively planted roughly 70,000 churches over the past 25 years.
Recognizing the value of the vision he was laying out from the book of Acts, we transcribed his sermon and submitted it to Exponential.org to share his wisdom with one of the largest community of leaders committed to the multiplication of faith communities. Today it went live on their site, so rush over to Exponential at http://www.exponential.org/planting-a-sending-church/ and read an excerpt from Benny’s sermon delivered at Xenos Christian Fellowship of Northeast Ohio in February, 2015.
