Plant Churches

A Word from Randy Loescher
Former Church Planting Director for Central Region.
Why plant churches? Despite our strong Christian heritage, the church in America is declining. Many older churches show signs of aging and decline, struggling to make the gospel relevant to a new generation and often failing to bridge that cultural gap. According to Leith Anderson in A Church for the 21st Century, “new churches are the most effective means of evangelism.”

Why would a couple, on multiple occasions, uproot their family in the midst of effective, enjoyable ministry? Chuck Loftis stated, “It is my aim to plant simple churches focused on sound biblical teaching that will help believers mature in the faith and find ways to serve their respective communities.”

Living Word Open Bible Church, Hollywood, FL
Florida’s landscape is dotted with Open Bible churches pastored by immigrants. One such church, Living Word Open Bible Church in Cooper City, Florida, is zealous in their efforts to reach their community and beyond. Like the church in the book of Acts, this church turns obstacles into Kingdom opportunities.
