VIDEO: Hanging with Paul in Whitehall, Bringing a Church Planter Mindset to the Existing Church

Church Planters are a different breed. They are supposed to be the guys who kick-start a ministry with high activity and community involvement. Don’t tell that to Paul Shepherd.


As the relatively new pastor of a 25+/- year-old church in Whitehall, NY, Shepherd is using the principles church planters use, and he is using them out of the same sense of need. “We have a great church here,” he said. “It was a great foundation. And what I wanted to do is turn our focus outward. Through evangelism and outreach, we are getting our people excited about the gospel, and people are getting saved and getting them baptized.”

The video featured here (click the image above) was shot in November, 2014. Thanks for watching.
