Title: State of Church Planting in the U.S. Today


1
State of Church Planting in the U.S. Today
  • A Leadership Network Research Project

2
  • Trends in Church Multiplication

3
Transition to local
  • It is clear that the energy of successful church
    planting is moving quickly from denominational
    structures to the more hands-on local churches
    and networks.

4
Evangelistic Effectiveness
  • This generation of church planting leaders is
    committed to increasing not only the
    survivability and multiplication of church plants
    but also the evangelistic effectiveness of those
    plants.

5
Church Planting Systems
  • assessment, basic training, coaching
  • Plants using these systems are more likely to
    reach unchurched and grow more quickly than
    plants who do not.

6
Resources
  • Church plants that grow larger, more quickly,
    tend to be more heavily resourced and staffed
    than those that do not.

7
Funding
  • Church planting emphasis is shifting from the
    initiative and oversight of a national or
    regional agency to that of a local church.

8
The shift
  • There is a trend where funding rests on the
    shoulders of the parent church and the church
    planter with the national agencies providing no
    more then 33 percent (or less) of funding needs.

9
National support
  • There appears to be a trended correlation between
    the amount of money the national agency
    contributes to each church plant and the number
    of parent churches in that denomination.

10
  • More money from the national agency correlates
    with a lower percentage of churches that become
    parent churches.

11
Observations
  • Local churches traditionally place a value on
    planting churches similar to themselvesand tend
    to do so through direct mothering or
    sponsorship.

12
Budgeting and Funding
  • Churches that aggressively pursue church planting
    have a number of financial factors in common.

13
Church planting churches…
  • Expect new planters to raise a sizeable amount of
    the church planting budget (50 percent 80
    percent)

14
Aggressive, reproducing churches
  • Provide less financial support than do
    less-aggressive churches.

15
  • The more money a parent church puts into a single
    church plant, the fewer number of churches they
    actually planted.

16
More-aggressive parent churches
  • Assigned 10 percent or more of the churchs
    overall budget to domestic church planting

17
Staffing and partnerships
  • One-third of larger churches had paid staff
    assigned to church planting.

18
Church planting staff
  • Most of these staff spent less than 50 percent of
    their time focused on church planting.

19
  • There is however a positive correlation between
    the number of staff who assist with church
    planting and the number of churches planted by
    that church.

20
  • There is a direct correlation between the senior
    pastors commitment to church planting and the
    churchs ability to plant successfully.

21
  • The more staff involved in church planting, the
    trend is for the church to become more involved
    with other partners and providers.

22
  • The more rapidly a church grows, the more likely
    they seem to initiate or become involved with a
    para-church church-planting network.

23
  • Churches that were 200 or less in attendance were
    four times more likely to plant a church than
    churches of 1000 or more in attendance.
  • Churches between 200500 in attendance were twice
    as likely to plant a church than their larger
    counterparts.

24
  • The more partners and service providers a parent
    church worked with the more churches they planted.

25
  • A reproducing, multi-staff, high-impact style
    church plant seems to be more popular with larger
    churches, and parallels the number of partners
    and providers with whom they associate.

26
Recruitment, Assessment, Training
  • Churches that reported aggressive church planting
    results viewed assessment, training,
    encouragement, coaching, and mentoring as more
    important and strategic than financial support.

27
  • Church-planting churches self-perceived role is
    to prepare the planter for the work in the field
    and to press him to self-sufficiency. There is a
    lot of freedom given to church planters to
    determine methodologies and form.

28
Vision and Value
  • A shared trait is the importance of articulating
    the vision and value of church planting to the
    church body through multiple levels of mass
    communication.

29
  • Success is conveyed in terms of personal
    involvement by its membership through prayer,
    financial giving and being sent out as a part of
    the planting core group.

30
  • The value of church planting is expressed as the
    most effective means of evangelism that a church
    can participate in for the expansion of Gods
    Kingdom and the fulfillment of the Great
    Commission.

31
  • The lead pastors encourage staff participation
    through lending their expertise in their
    particular ministry area to the church-planting
    efforts.

32
Analysis
  • Church-planting churches consistently reported a
    goal to create self-sufficient church planters
    and churches.

33
  • Most of them do not fund heavily. Rather, they
    place the planter into a great amount of
    training.

34
What is a Church Planting Church?
  • Do your church's founding documents or published
    vision, mission, values and strategy documents
    identify church planting as a key component of
    your church's vision?

35
DNA 2 of the following
  • Does your church regularly send members out to
    help with church plants?
  • Does your church give 5 or more of your annual
    budget to support direct church planting?
  • Does your church have a Church Planting Director
    or Coordinator on staff? (full or part-time)
  • Do you have a church planter internship or
    residency program?

36

church planting?
