How to Become a Church-Planting Church

Couldn't agree with this article more in terms of practical ways you can become a church-planting church. Oh that existing churches would get a heart for this New Testament model of missional faithfulness. Below is the overview and the full article here.

Year 1
  • Assess and re-define your church missions strategy/philosophy.
  • Allocate a certain percentage of your annual budget for church planting.
Years 2 to 5
  • Partner with other churches in supporting a church planter.
  • Adopt and support an existing church planter.
  • Intentionally build a church-planting ethos in your church.
Years 6 and Beyond
  • Do a church-planting residency with a future church planter.
  • Hire staff with the aim of sending them out to plant after 3 to 5 years.
