A (Banned) Word For Church Planters

From what I've read this video was shot for a church planting conference, but didn't get distributed because of some remarks made by a pastor of a certain church in South Barrington. Of course being contraband makes it much more prized and interesting than if it had been passed out to begin with. In it, Pastor Mark Driscoll talks about what it takes to be a church planter today.

i don't want to make any assumptions friend, but what do you think about Driscoll's idea that only men can be church planters?

I think that if one equates church planters with pastors and pastors with elders, then yes, I agree. And I hold to those assumptions. I think God specifically calls men to bear the primary responsibility in church leadership.

Your thoughts, my brother?
