Why do we plant churches?
We believe that the chief way the Kingdom of God advances is through the local church. Therefore we are passionate about raising up church planters and team members to take the gospel of Jesus to Leeds, the UK and the nations of the world.
The Newfrontiers family of churches are currently working in all five continents of the world. There are still however an estimated two billion people that are yet to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our task is to raise up leaders who will plant Christ-centred, grace-filled, life-giving, Bible-believing, Holy Spirit-empowered churches that will advance the Kingdom of God until Jesus returns.
As well as seeing many members relocate over the years to other parts of the UK and overseas, Mosaic has also planted two churches:
The Oak Church was planted from Mosaic in January 2011 by Chris and Lisa Mason, with a vision to establish an authentic missional Christian community in West Leeds and East Bradford. The new church continues to grow and see people added and baptised and, through growing small multiplying communities throughout the area, the church is having an increasing missional impact on the streets, workplaces and social gatherings of the two cities.
Steve and Leanne Vaughan moved to the great city of Dublin in September 2012 to plant a church that is based on the scriptures, empowered by the Holy Spirit and brings the message of God’s grace and hope in Christ to those in the city. Visit their website, Beginning in Dublin, here. Their desire is to start a church which has mission and discipleship at its foundation and trains others up to go and do the same elsewhere in the nation of Ireland. Please pray that they would both be a blessing to the city and see people come to Christ.
In 2012, Martin and Karolyn Simbeye and their two children moved to Kapiri in Zambia to build a secondary school. Our hope is that eventually a church will also be planted alongside this school. If you'd be interested in helping to plant a church in Zambia, please get in touch with us.
