Factor #4: Plant a church only after getting wise counsel.
All of us have our blind spots, and none of us see with perfectly clear vision. That is why we need to continually be in the Word, so that God can search our hearts for sin and selfish intentions. That is also why we need to open up our lives to wise counsellors who can help us see what we have missed.
Proverbs 15:22 tells us, “Without counsel purposes are disappointed: But in the multitude of counsellers they are established.”
As we seek to determine where to plant a church, it is very important to bring as many wise counsellors into the decision as possible. This does not mean you follow the advice of everyone, but it would be foolish to not seek out or to ignore the advice of other church-planters who have experience and wisdom in church-planting.
