It has always amazed me how many church planters and churches sponsoring churches often rush to launch prematurely! Often the church planter in his zeal to begin weekly worship meetings actually begins to hold weakly worship meetings all because he decided to launch before he was ready. Sometimes even the sponsoring church will rush the new work to launch in order to get it up and running and sadly on its own. Launching a new work by God’s glory and for God’s glory is a Holy Spirit directed endeavor. Launching too late is as much a hindrance as launching too early so it is vital we get in on God’s agenda by allowing the Lord to guide in the particular timeliness of the launch. So let’s journey together for a moment as we look at the eleven consequences of a premature launch.
