In this episode, Rev. Daniel Yang — Director of the Send Institute, joins hosts Rev. Dr. Steven Schave, former Director of LCMS Church Planting, and Rev. Dr. Mark Larson, Manager of Church Planting in the Mission Field: USA initiative, to explore a more effective narrative to explain the need for church planting.
