Voddie Baucham NEW CHURCH PLANT 2010

In January 2010 Grace Family Baptist in Texas whom Voddie Baucham is one of the elders, will be planting another church (which will be in another part of Texas). They have been a church less than four years but have grown quickly, Voddie Baucham expressed his desire to be a church planting church over a year ago at a Founders conference:

This is glorious news, it is certainly refreshing to hear of such growth in such a doctrinally declining country. Voddie Baucham has posted a 3 part series (part one HERE) concerning the details of the Church plant including why they did not go other routes like: multiple services, satellite services, or build a bigger building.
Here is a small piece of very interesting and appealing information concerning what Grace Family Baptist Church does: (taken from the first post in the series)
Our service is unique. We meet at 10:45, and are together until 3:00pm (or later). Each Lord’s Day we have a prayer time (Matt 21:13; cf. Mark 11:17; Luke 19:46), sing (Eph 5:19; Col 3:16), read significant portions of New and Old Testament Scripture (1 Timothy 4:13 ESV), preach for about an hour (2 Timothy 4:2), observe the Lord’s Supper (1 Cor 11:23–26), and share a fellowship meal (Acts 2:42–47). This simply will not fit into a pair of neat ninety minute services. Nor would we want it to.
