Some Definitions

Jerusalem: The area within reasonable immediate reach of an established church and pastor.
Judaea: The area out of reasonable immediate reach of the established church and pastor, but within reach of a church plant from the established church. This might be 30-40 minutes away up to two hours away.
Samaria and the Uttermost parts: The area out of reasonable immediate reach and therefore out of reach for a church plant using the model in this study. Samaria and the Uttermost parts require a sending out, or apostolic model, what is commonly termed missions. This model concentrates on Judaea, (see Matthew 28:19-20) but a missionary doing the work of an evangelist could use this model for greater success after the first church is planted on the field.
Evangelist: New Testament preacher, someone who preaches the Gospel and gathers converts into existing or new churches.
The established pastor: This is the man whom God often burdens to plant new churches within his Judaea. He is a pastor, doing the work of an evangelist. He will be the pastor of the new church plant until God sends the new pastor. Notice Paul's behavior at Ephesus: "Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears."—Acts 20:31. Paul was an evangelist in the office of a pastor, continuing the work of an evangelist for three years.
Absolute death: When a church dies and has not reproduced itself in the planting of new churches, we term this absolute death.
