Every church plant has a unique story. Through numerous books, blogs and face-to-face conversations, I have been enlightened by those who have followed God’s call to start a new church. Many have paved the way and yet each venture of church planting adds a new chapter of how it was birthed. While we look to launch this fall in NW Des Moines, God has exercised His creativity in orchestrating the start of Union Chapel.
In these big decisions and in the seemingly minute details, the Lord has consistently reminded us that He is going before us. We have learned to trust in the truth that was given to the Israelites in their journey, “The Lord is the One who will go before you. He will be with you; He will not leave you or forsake you. Do not be afraid or discouraged.”
