1-Day New Church Planning Workshop
This workshop targets planters who are called to plant, but
are not sure how to get started. We address questions such as
“how much money will I need? What staff should I look for? How
do I develop a launch plan? What will opening day look like?
What kind of outreach and marketing should I do? What type of
facility should I look for?” Our goal is to empower church
planters (and their teams) to develop customized launch plans
while helping to answer their questions. The workshop is
offered 3 to 4 times per year. Click here for more information.
