Stonebridge United Methodist Church

This evening we heard the first half of a presentation from Don Smith on the planting of Stonebridge United Methodist Church in McKinney, Texas. He is founder of Vital Connections. From their website:

The mission of Vital Connections is to provide meaningful relationships where mentoring, coaching and encouragement serve to equip and inspire faith pioneers in successful ministry.
It has been a great story so far. It is important to remember that stories of other congregation plants always need to be contextualized - copy and paste mission and ministry is not effective.
