Is church planting always a good thing?

Just a quick shot here – not much time to post. I’ve just been brewing on some conversations I’ve been a part of recently in which church planters are discussing their work. I hear a lot of talk about the new church, the new vision, the new approaches . . . but I can’t say I hear a lot about Jesus. In one case, I heard a church planter describe his “non-institutional” approach to church planting, and I can’t recall hearing the words “God” or “Jesus” or “Kingdom”.

Don’t get me wrong – I value church planting . . . but the point isn’t to start new churches, is it? Please tell me it’s not. Please tell me that creating new environments for the King and the Kingdom to be announced and revealed has something to do with it.
