Being confident of God’s calling to Church Planting is only the first step in the process of becoming a Planter. Those that God has called must also determine where His Spirit is leading them to plant a church. Experience has demonstrated that God calls certain people to plant churches in particular areas. In His wisdom, God matches the personalities, socioeconomic backgrounds, ethnicities, and psychographics of the planters and the planting field. In some instances He calls a planter that has significant skills in cross-cultural ministry to plant in a pioneer area.
