The Catalyst Plan - Ignite Church Planting

  1. 1. The Catalyst Plan:Funding Organic Networks <br />A Pathway to Financial Sustainability<br />Ignite Church Planting<br />
  2. 2. Ignite’s Current Funding Models<br />High Impact Plan<br />150K over 3 years given to the church<br />75K 1st year, 50K 2nd year, 25K 3rd year.<br />10% of the plant’s tithe (1%) is given back to Ignite for 7 years following start date.<br />Cluster Plan <br />“Cluster” (3x congregations) + Ignite = a new church plant in 3yrs.<br />(3churches x 15K) + (Ignite 15K) x 3 years = 180K<br />Tithes: 5% back to Ignite, 5% to a new Cluster<br />Proposed “Catalyst Plan”…<br />
  3. 3. Ignite Church Planting<br />Goal in funding organic church networks is to:<br />Stated mission: Advance the mission of Jesus by starting new churches. <br />The Catalyst Plan offers a new approach for the same mission. Multiple strategies = health.<br />Grow an organic church network to the point of helping other church networks emerge by giving financially back to Ignite.<br />Reach people outside of the “40%” and in urban contexts<br />
  4. 4. Organic Church Networks (OCNs)<br />1 - Goal of OCNs giving back to Ignite:<br />Return on Investment (ROI) recoups the cost so Ignite is able/motivated to start new house church networks.<br />2 - Goal of OCN supporting leaders (Catalysts)<br />Keeps us honest about the time/energy needed for apprenticing Jesus-followers and planting churches.<br />
  5. 5. Catalyst Plan<br />Ignite*15K1522.5 1522.515 7.5 = $112.5K<br />Year 1 2 3 4 5 6 7<br />36.4K 62K 104K182.2K<br />Tithes**5.2K 10.4K20.8K<br />*Funds Catalysts at 15K for 2 years, then 7.5K in year 3<br />** See details on Slide 9<br />
  6. 6. OCN Proposed Budget Plan<br />* 2/3rd (or 10% of total donations) of this to Ignite<br />
  7. 7. A Few Projections<br />From year 1 in an organic church network:<br />Catalyst #1 funded by Ignite, looking for #2.<br />Assume 4 organic churches in 3years.<br />@ 10 people each = 40 ppl<br />$10 per week per person<br />= $400/week x 52 weeks = $20,800 /year<br />10%* to Ignite = $2,080 to Ignite/year <br />= $2,080 to Ignite by 3rd year.<br />*(2/3rd of OCN’s “First Fruits” budget category)<br />
  8. 8. A Few Projections<br />Assumes 1000 people in the OCN in 9 years.<br /> 1000ppl x $10 per capita/week<br />$10,000 in donations/week<br />$520,000 annual donations<br />10% to Ignite<br />$52,000 to Ignite in year 9<br />Projection: Ignite should recover ROI by year 9, only 2 years after their funding is complete.<br />
  9. 9. Fine Print Calculations<br />See how I got these calculations on Slide 7+8: “A few Projections”<br />Year 1 = 1 house churches (HCs) at 10 people = total annual tithe: $5,200 --- $520 to Ignite<br />Year 2 = 2 HCs at 20ppl = $10,400 --- $1,040 to Ignite<br />Year 3 = 4 HCs at 40ppl = $20,800 --- $2,080 to Ignite<br />Year 4 = 7 HCs at 70ppl = $36,400 --- $3,640 to Ignite<br />Year 5 = 12 HCs at 120ppl = $62,400 --- $6,240 to Ignite<br />Year 6 = 20 HCs at 200ppl = $104,000 -- $10,400 to Ignite<br />Year 7* = 35 HCs at 350ppl = $182,000 -- $18,200 to Ignite<br />Year 8 = 60 HCs at 600ppl = $312,000 -- $31,200 to Ignite<br />Year 9 = 100 HCs at 1000ppl =$520,000 -- $52,000 to Ignite = total to Ignite at 9 years = $124,800 (ROI to Ignite is complete!)<br />*Ignite completes 7 year funding<br />
  10. 10. OCN Leader Support Projections<br />
  11. 11. Pathway to Sustainability<br />Tithes<br />OCN Bank, (10% to Ignite)<br />Additional offerings<br />Shoebox Love Offerings<br />“Ignite-Funded OCN”<br /><ul><li> ROI is complete in 9yrs
  12. 12. Feels motivated to start new “Catalyst” Plants…</li></ul>…a NEW organic church network begins!<br />
