    ALPHARETTA, Ga. — The North American Mission Board’s PowerPlant initiative to expose students to church planting and evangelism will conduct projects next summer in 19 cities nationwide, including Los Angeles, Atlanta, Denver and Cincinnati.

    Church youth groups — from two people to 200, from those who have finished sixth grade to college students — are eligible to participate. PowerPlant is pre-packaged to let students learn “hands-on” about church planting principles and evangelism skills. 

    John W. Bailey, team leader for PowerPlant at NAMB, said, “We have a lot of options for youth ministers to choose from.

    “We have some neat first-time cities like Los Angeles and Madison, Wis., in addition to cities we’ve been in for years, such as Nashville and Chicago.”

    Other cities on the 2010 PowerPlant schedule are Port Arthur, Texas; Memphis, Tenn.; Savannah, Ga.; Indianapolis, Ind.; St. Louis, Mo.; Phoenix, Ariz.; Greenville/Spartanburg, S.C.; Philadelphia, Pa.; Seattle, Wash.; Ottawa, Ontario (Canada); San Francisco Bay Area, Calif.; and Charleston, W.Va.

    Church youth groups will be teamed with a church planter and participants will minister to the community through a variety of assignments that could include sports camps, vacation Bible schools and servant evangelism.

    Participants will learn key principles of church planting in morning sessions, and will work with their church plants each afternoon. At the end of the day, youth groups will come together for worship.
