Can Short-Term Teams Foster Long-Term Church-Planting Movements?

For the past several years, our team has engaged in supporting a local village church in church planting efforts.  We do this by going into the unreached village with the Gospel.  Sometimes that means holding nightly crusades, or hut-to-hut evangelism, or both.  Once we leave the field, the local church (Shalom Baptist), follows up with strong efforts to disciple the new converts and get a church started.

If you've ever wondered whether a short-term mission team can have an impact on church planting movements in the mission field, read this article from Mission Frontiers magazine.
