Church Planting Survivability and Health Study
2007 Best Practices Ed Stetzer Phillip Connor

METHODOLOGY
  • Following the multi-denominational study for
    church planting survivability and health, further
    surveying and analysis of other denominations was
    requested. The goal of this over sampling was to
    learn what particular denominations are doing
    well among their church planting systems
  • Over 100 factors for higher attendance and
    baptism were tested. Complete list of
    statistically significant factors by denomination
    in Appendix B
  • Statistically significant factors were grouped
    together to form best practices for church
    planting by denomination. In most cases, these
    best practices are unique to the particular
    denomination.

Creating a Culture of Generosity
  • BGC Presentation

32
Fear and Neglect of Money Issues
  • Convictions you must have
  • God blesses generosity.
  • Its not about what the church needs, its about
    what the Lord wants.
  • A tithe is an appropriate standard to challenge
    people toward.

33
Fear and Neglect of Money Issues
Gods Guarantee Card Bring the whole tithe into
the storehouse, that there may be food in my
house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty,
"and see if I will not throw open the floodgates
of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you
will not have room enough for it. Malachi
310 My part By Gods grace I will contribute
10 of my income for the next 90 days to
Community Church. Gods part To bless me
according to Malachi 310. Community Churchs
part If at the end of 90 days I feel that
tithing has been a mistake, has not resulted in
the blessing of God, or has created a financial
hardship, Community Church will refund to me all
that has been contributed during that period of
time. -----------------------------------

EFCA Vision
  • The EFCA church planting vision is to mobilize a
    church planting movement in the United States
    where every healthy EFCA church will reproduce at
    least two daughter churches and no EFCA church
    planter will be left alone.

41
Reproducing Vision
  • Reproducing Reality Sterile Churches
  • Reproducing Clinics Blow up CP Myths
  • Hurt mother church
  • Enough churches
  • Large church
  • Most plants fail
  • Reproducing Vision Plant two
  • One daughter church to replace itself.
  • One daughter church to advance the kingdom.
  • Reproduction normal natural outflow of health.

42
Planter Vision
  • Planter reality Stranded
  • No Planter Left Alone
  • EFCA System ACTS
  • Assessment
  • Coaching
  • Training
  • Supporting

ACTS
43
EFCA BootCamp

  • Built on a 4R model
  • Principle centered
  • Trainers are practitioners
  • Church Growth 101 100, 200, Repro.
  • ABC Integration
  • Relentless refinement

44
EFCA Assessment
  • Self Assessment On line
  • Planter Profile, MBTI, DiSC, Spiritual Gifts
  • Modified Behavioral Interview

45
Holistic ABC Integration

  • Train For Content
  • Coach For Implementation

46
2007 Study
  • EFCA Planters
  • Coach 94
  • Peer Network 53
  • BootCamp 87
  • Other training 100
  • Assessment 90 (my guess)
  • We work hard on our support systems!

47
EFCA and Funding
  • Show Me The Money!

48
Fourth Question
  1. Assessment Is he a planter?
  2. Training Does he have a good plan?
  3. Coaching Does he have someone to help him stay
    on target, on time, and in balance?
  4. Funding Does he have adequate funding to be
    successful?

49
ABC-D Integration
  • Assessment
  • Vision caster- People gatherer- Fund raiser
  • BootCamp Training Proposal
  • Good proposal Realistic funding projections
  • Coaching
  • Know planters want to skip fund raising.
  • Development
  • When ABC is in place, we can confidently invest
    in planters.

50
EFCA Resources
  • National Revolving Fund (CPRF)
  • Very small 250,000
  • Large estate gift 10-12 year process
  • 18 Districts All over the map
  • Some districts have CPRF Road kill
  • Some districts have no money
  • Most districts in-between

51
Revolving Principle
  • Encouraging districts to develop CPRF
  • Not a grant, but an investment
  • We invest in you
  • You tithe back to the CPRF
  • You invest in the next generation

52
Funding Models
  • Adolescent Full Support
  • Pure Pioneer Missionary Support
  • Combination 90 of EFCA plants
  • Planter, Area Churches, District, National

53
Balanced Approach
  • Strong subsidy Weak churches
  • No support Planter alone
  • Strategic Partnership of Equal Sacrifice

54
Matching Principle
55
upport Building
  • Train planters to raise missionary support
  • Negative Dont cross salt water, not real
  • Positive Short Term Commitment 2-3 years
  • Two Support Building Resources
  • People Raising (ww.peopleraising.com)
  • Body Builders (www.thebodybuilders.net)
  • Result Raise 100,000 to 150,000

56
upport Building
  • Credibility
  • Many of our district leaders raise support
  • Best Practice
  • GLD Use former missionary to coach

57
2007 StudySponsoring Churches
  • Districts recruit sponsoring churches
  • EFCA Plants 53 had parent church
  • Parent Church 88 provided funding
  • Parent Church 38 loaned lay people
  • We do have some very generous existing churches.

58
2-3 Year Funding Model
59
Generosity DNA
  • BootCamp Training
  • You are responsible for the generosity DNA
  • Grand Opening Tithe
  • Fair Share 1 District, 1 National
  • 8 Church Planting, 18 Missions

60
Team Church Planting
  • Emerging leaders Team oriented
  • Lead planter Funded
  • Teammates
  • Bi-vocational or upported
  • Plants Grow larger, faster

61
Foursquare Church Multiplication
  • Best Practices
  • Rod Koop

62
Coaching
  • Duration
  • funded for 18 months
  • Timing
  • assigned as early as assessment debrief, no later
    than the start of training
  • Tools
  • coaches have access to both the assessment and
    the church planters proposal

63
Coaching
  • Training
  • 1 hour, 12 minute DVD and 16 page booklet using
    the G.R.O.W. model
  • Reporting
  • mandatory, monthly online report that speaks to a
    planters personal life, family life and ministry
    life (in that order)
  • ongoing coach/planter support training informed
    by the quality of monthly reports

64
Funding
  • 20,000 per plant, or 5 churches for 100,000
  • Extraordinary funding available for proven,
    fruitful leaders or breakthrough opportunities,
    to a high of 60,000 for a single plant

65
Process versus Event
  • Church Multiplication systems are crucial for
    success. But unless they are process rather than
    event oriented, they will not work.
  • We value relationships more than we do systems.
    Our processes work best
  • through relationships.

66
Flexibility Question
  • In order to be fair, you must treat everyone
    __________.
  • Dad, 52 years at Rockwell, said the same
  • Russ, 40 years old and a disaster relief
    construction manager, said differently.
  • Both claimed to be right, saying mutiny would
    happen in the workplace if they did otherwise

67
Flexibility Question
  • But both were right in their context
  • The question iswhat is right in yours?
  • Our process and funding theology comes from the
    Parable of the Talents
  • You must be ready to live in ambiguity, and have
    a high comfort level with conflict

68
Flexibility Question
  • Fulfilling objectives and outcomes for
    assessment, training and coaching is required for
    funding
  • Flexibility allows us to accomplish this in many
    different ways
  • Flexibility equals TRUST in the Field. Trust
    comes through relationship

69
Coaching
  • Objectives
  • to provide personal, family and ministry support
  • help the planter stay on track, avoiding pitfalls
  • to accelerate the progress of the church plant
  • to be the planters best advocate in navigating
    organizational culture

70
Coaching
  • A business-like session or flexibility in
    Relationship
  • Examples
  • Diane Thomas Takes a cohort of planters to
    multiple site visits, looking closely at one
    anothers ministries
  • Pete Akins Does phone call and email coaching
    appointments, then takes the planters into Zion
    National Park for an annual weekend canyoneering
    and hiking trip

A Church Planting Movement
  • A Movement is a work of Gods Spirit that
    produces indigenous, healthy, growing,
    reproducing Gospel-Centered Churches that result
    in the spiritual, social and cultural
    transformation of a community.
