Summary

Based on a missional theology for church planting and biblical support for planting healthy churches and a review of previous research on effective church planting, the project's leadership training seminar assessment indicated an urgent need to plant more Samoan churches in the Northwestern U.S. With increased interest in church planting as one of the most effective evangelistic strategies for reaching the lost, this project hopes to ignite a new passion among Samoan pastors and church leaders to plant healthy churches.

The planting of new Samoan Assemblies of God churches in the Northwestern U.S. plays a critical role in the Samoan ecclesiastical landscape. Church planting efforts to accommodate the needs of the ever increasing Samoan population in America is only the beginning. Planting healthy churches, which seeks to improve the spiritual fitness and maturity of the body of Christ, is the goal. To accomplish this goal, Samoan church planters must return to the biblical-theological foundation for church planting. While the responsibility of planting new churches lies with the Samoan church leaders, ultimately all church planting ventures are a supernatural work of God. This project serves as an impetus for planting Samoan churches and encourages the training of Samoan pastors and church leaders in implementing relevant strategies for planting healthy churches.
