Episode 212: Carl Kuhl makes deciding where to plant simple

Planting a church, but you’re unsure where to start? Carl Kuhl joins Rusty on the podcast to share some of his experiences planting Mosaic Christian Church, which was twice named one of the fastest growing churches in America. Rusty and Carl also dig in to his new book, Blood Stained Pews and talk through the value of vulnerability in the church.
Planting a church isn't easy. There are so many factors to consider, like where you'll plant the church and how to support the community you'll serve.

Carl Kuhl knows a thing or two about that experience, and I'm glad to have him on the podcast this week to share his insights. He's a pastor, a church planter, and an incredible leader with a fascinating perspective on leading a church.
Not only do we dig into the ins and outs of church planting, but I also had the chance to talk with Carl about his new book Blood Stained Pews and the life change that can happen when people in the church are less afraid to be honest about their struggles.Special thanks to Stadia Church Planting for sponsoring this episode!
