    If writing about churches starting churches were a chemistry experiment, “relational models” of church planting would be the catalyst that causes the experiment to boil over. Relational models focus on sending Christians into their communities to gather and disciple people who are not involved in churches. If enough people are gathered, new congregations may form.
