There are 50 areas within the Chesapeake Conference that need a Seventh-day Adventist Church presence, says David Klinedinst, Evangelism and Church Growth director for the conference. To address this gap in church-to-population ratio, the conference has officially adopted a plan to plant 35 new churches by the year 2025.
“It’s part of the gospel commission,” says Klinedinst. “The early Adventist church was always a churchplanting movement, so it’s time to rediscover our roots. And this will help us depend more on Christ because this is something we cannot do alone.”
