The Rob Skinner Podcast: Helping You Make This Life Count

Dec 12, 2022

If you’ve ever considered planting a church, leading in the ministry full or part-time, then you need to read my book, “How to Plant and Grow a Church.”  This book is a complete manual for small church growth.  In this episode I read the introduction and chapter one and talk about the motivation to plant or lead a church.

It’s mid-December, 2022 and I hope you are enjoying all the banquets, parties and events that characterize Christmas.  Here’s what’s been going on with me:

  • Pam and I went up and appointed Brian and Abby Mackie as an evangelist and women’s ministry leader in Flagstaff, Arizona. They’ve done a great job getting that church off the ground and have grown it from a eight disciples to around 45 in a little over a year. I hope to interview them and talk about their journey on an upcoming episode.
  • I’m looking forward to the Climb Conference November 30th, 2023. Please make plans to go.
  • I’m looking for a replacement couple for Kevin and Erica Lu on campus at the University of Arizona. They leave in September 2023 to go to Revive EE.  If you are interested in becoming a church planter, Evangelist or women’s leader, I’d like to ask you to email me and let’s talk about our ministry incubator program.  I’m looking for someone who wants to start on campus and then in time lead their own church.  The unique aspect of this program is that you’ll have someone to walk with.  I spent four days a week on campus this last fall with Kevin and Erica, Felipe and Ed and walked with them.  I met someone personally, studied with them and baptized them.  If you are looking for spiritual training or know someone who is, please email me at  This is a paid position.
  • I’m also looking for adults who would like to lead a small church in a suburban setting. I’m praying to plant churches around the Tucson Metropolitan area and am looking for a married couple with kids, empty nesters or retirees who’d be interested in doing mission work in the Tucson metro area.  Email me at
