B21 is excited to host a panel on Gospel-Centered preaching. It will take place during the lunch break of the 9Marks Conference at SEBTS on September 10th in the Ledford’s Multi-Purpose Room. The lineup for the panel is an all-star list of preachers: Danny Akin, Thabiti Anyabwile, Matt Chandler, Mark Dever, and David Platt.
Here are some of the questions that will help guide our conversation:

Baptist21 continues its series highlighting church planting partnerships and opportunities within the SBC with SendNYC. SendNYC exists “to see 100 gospel-centered churches planted in the New York City area by December 2020.”
Aaron Coe, their executive director, was kind enough to give B21 some answers to some important questions so that you might prayerfully consider getting involved with SendNYC and impacting that Great City:
Why urban church planting?
It’s no surprise that we are living in the midst of a global population shift. Unfortunately, as many have relocated to the cities to follow the dream, the church has retreated. Cities are the mouthpiece of any nation and the place where culture is created. If the gospel of Jesus is going to spread around the world in the 21st century, urban centers will be its launching pad. We, the church, must move back and live our lives seeking the peace and prosperity of the city.
How does SendNYC fit the need?
In an effort to engage this reemerging conversation, I launched SendNYC, a church planting organization, for the sole purpose of seeing one hundred new gospel-centered churches planted in New York City over the next decade. Multiplicative church planting continues to prove to be the most effective, biblical evangelization strategy aiding leadership, fostering community amongst believers, promoting urban contextualization, and assimilating new believers.
What is the vision of SendNYC?
The vision of SendNYC embodies three components:
Mobilize 300 Partners to pray; participate, anything from short-term mission trips to lifetime relocation; and provide.
Equip 100 Sending Churches to fully execute the process of launching new congregations in New York City. Rather than working primarily with church planters, we will focus a good portion of our energy to equip the sending church to support the church plant in a variety of ways from laying a biblical foundation to financial accountability.
Plant 100 New Gospel-centered Churches in New York City. We firmly believe that churches plant churches, and we desire simply to serve as a catalyst to that end. As resident missiologists, we intend to help the local church be on mission in New York City.

Baptist21 is excited about what SendNYC is doing to eternally impact that great city. Some of the things we love best are:
- The determination to impact such an influential city with such a great need.
- The focus on allowing local churches to drive the planting. If you are a local church pastor who is looking to lead your congregation to plant churches in places that really need them, then please contact Aaron.
What is it: A collaborative effort between Baptist21 and SEBTS to highlight the Primacy of the Local Church and Mission through Church Planting. Specifically, this meeting will focus on the church planting churches that are in partnership with SEBTS and highlight them for students that potentially feel the call to church planting, as well as trying to highlight good models of church planting.
When: September 2nd immediately after chapel (11:15-12:45ish) – lunch will be provided by SEBTS
Where: Multi-Purpose Room
What churches will be involved: Pastors and interns from Open Door, North Wake, Faith, Summit, Vintage21, and Treasuring Christ Church
What will take place: A Pastor and an intern will speak to their church-planting model and the internships they have that train people for future church planting. In addition, Baptist21 will share about the importance of gospel-centrality, primacy of the local church, and the need to be committed to church planting churches if you are considering church planting.
The Northeast has become the least reached area in America. But there are some very exciting things happening there in the area of church planting. This is true in the Baptist Convention of Pennsylvania/South Jersey. This state convention is partnering with local churches and allowing them to train future church planters for their area!
One of the churches leading out is Riverside Community Church in Philadelphia, which is led by Pastor Aaron Harvie. Riverside is right now in the process of supporting and mentoring 4 churches in Pennsylvania. They are specifically targeting the great city of Philadelphia. As a planter himself, Aaron, along with other Multiplying Church Centers, is able to train and mentor guys in church planting.
Baptist21 wanted to let you know about this great work. Aaron has graciously provided us with information so that you can prayerfully consider planting in the Northeast.
Church Planting Process:
The aspiring planter begins by taking a Discovery Tools profile (found online here). Following this there is a Pre-Assessment phone interview to determine whether or not to proceed with a formal assessment. Leading up to formal assessment these materials need to be completed: Personnel Form, Assessment Release and Disclaimer Form, Credit and Criminal Background Check Release. Reference forms will be mailed upon return of Personnel Form.
After this there is a formal assessment which consists of a face-to-face interview with an experienced planter on site with your spouse. If the assessment is successful the planter will be placed in a Multiplying Church Center.
At the Center a planter will receive Basic Training on site from a Mentor/Coach. The Coach will walk the planter through the first steps of a church planting strategy. Some of the things the planter will be trained in are:
The Training will prepare the planter for the launch of the church.
The Center and Coach will continue to mentor the planter through the Launch and after. Training will include a ministry strategy for developing leaders and future church planting and multiplication.
If you want more information about planting in Philadelphia or helping with what Aaron and others are doing in Pennsylvania/South Jersey please contact him.

Baptist21 could not be more excited about these efforts. Here are some of the best things about this effort:
Pastor Matt Chandler, of the Village Church, will join the B21 Panel to be held at this year’s 9Marks Conference @ SEBTS. The Panel will focus on the topic “Gospel-Centered Preaching in the Local Church.” Pastor Chandler is well-known in the evangelical world for his contributions to this topic (see video clip above). B21 is thankful to add him to this panel and we look forward to learning from him.
The B21 panel is being held in conjunction with the 9Marks conference on “Biblical Theology” held at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. This conference boasts a strong lineup of Danny Akin, Thabiti Anyabwile, Matt Chandler, Mark Dever, and David Platt. We would like for you to be signed up for this conference before signing up for the B21 lunch panel.
