  1. Tim, thanks for this. In my limited experience about this topic is that so many young pastors heroize someone like Keller, and Keller keeps talking about church plant in the cities, so they want to plant churches. So I tend to think the power of a charismatic leader’s voice is involved.

    • Scot, there is absolutely no doubt that gaining the real support of people like Tim Keller, Mark Driscoll, and now Rick Warren/Geoff Surratt–as well as other prominent pastors has really helped the momentum of church planting. It will be interesting to see if it’s something in these particular leaders that resonates, or if it’s idea itself that resonates so well with young leaders. Could be both. Time will tell, I suppose.
