Transcript of "Ch.28 strategies for starting churches"

  1. 1. Introduction to MissiologyCh.28 – Strategies for Starting Churches
  2. 2. Why Start Churches? It is the NT pattern World population growth exceeds the capacity of existing churches to evangelize and assimilate, even if they were trying Most established churches plateau by the ten-year mark New churches are more flexible and adaptable to new people
  3. 3. Reasons to Start Diversity exceeds the ability of any one church to adapt to all the different kinds of people Easier to win people in their own setting, which means planting a church there New churches are more evangelistically effective New churches inspire the starting of additional churches New churches mobilize a higher percentage of their members for ministry
  4. 4. Principles for Planting Work through existing local churches Do careful study before choosing a target Communicate the message with relevance As seekers become believers, congregate Implement a plan of continual development and growth
  5. 5. Application: How to Involve Churches? Mission committees and sponsorship Volunteers to become a new core group Sacrificial giving for a new congregation Introduce church starting as a core value
  6. 6. Involving Churches (Cont) Hire a planter to plant a daughter church Hive off a significant number of members Become a partner with other churches to plant Convert the church into multiple congregations Develop a satellite congregation of a different style on a different day or place
  7. 7. Application: Target audience Do a demographic analysis – whether near or far Criteria for selection include some or all of  The group most like the current congregation  The group most open to the gospel  The group most unchurched  The group like the intended planter
  8. 8. Application: Relevant Communication How does the gospel address the pressing concerns of the target audience? What crises have emerged that provide entry points for service and a message of hope? Obtain answers through prayer-walking, surveys, and friendship building
  9. 9. Application: Congregating Believers Gather converts into home-based small groups Quickly identify and work through potential leaders Develop a time of worship and teaching that involves converts and seekers and reflects their sensibilities of what is proper Extend the ministry though convert-led evangelism and ministry Formalize the new church only after a pattern of multiplication of converts, leaders, and groups is established
