    The Church Planting Process

    This overall process remains the same for each church planter, but each phase will adjust a pipeline to fit their situation.

  • Image

    You'll need to be convinced of the need to plant churches, discern your participation in church planting, and contact us.

  • Image

    The main goal of the Assessment phase is to evaluate your current preparedness for church planting. This is so important!

  • Image

    You'll develop an individualized learning plan for your development, and a strategy for the church you want to plant.

  • Image

    You'll begin to implement your plan. You will tackle the goals set within your ILP and develop your church planting strategy.

  • Image

    This is in step with the Implement phase. We believe christian life and church planting should happen within community.

  • Image

    This is an exciting time!
    You will work toward officially planting the church.

    Post Launch

    Many church planting processes stop after the Launch phase. We disagree. We believe the healthy churches reproduce.

The Overall Church Planting Process

The process is different from the pipeline. The pipeline is the components of each phase to maximize the desired output.

For example, the Plan portion for the pipeline of a church planter locally would include networking and developing a knowledge Minneapolis, where as the pipeline for a global church planter would include networking and developing knowledge of their city.
So the pipelines for each desired result would each have the same process, but the details of each phase in the process changes to develop the appropriate pipeline.
