There are two main threats to church plants: money and people. Running out of both produces inevitable demise. The answer to both, ironically, simultaneously answers a question on how to produce replicating planting movements. If I said there are one of two ways for a church plant to both survive AND turn into a multiplying […]

Please enjoy this repost and edit from 2015. This previous post describes one attribute common in church planting: if you’re brave enough to pioneer you have to deal with inevitable fear. Once you enter the fray by starting something new, when there’s no turning back, you encounter another realization of loneliness. Embarking on a risky […]

For most institutions, the extent of their church planting know-how amounts to “have a service and they will come”. A tactic that starts in skinny jeans and ends in a soft-launch. Which is fine, but denominations can’t all be using the same strategy. I suppose they could, but that would lead to widespread stagnation…which may […]

The effectiveness of traditional church planting core teams is heavily reliant on the managing skills of the lead church planter. Typical development often struggles to produce positive and repeatable results which should point to a flaw in the entire approach. Becoming a denominationally approved planter comes with a number of strings. Chief among them is […]

Late Summer I posted this: You’re Doing What?! Cancelling a Successful Service in Search of Deeper I blogged about cancelling the successful service of my church plant and the reasons why. On the surface it sounds counterintuitive to conventional church planting. Generally, success is measured in the size of the service. The faster the better, and […]

What would it look like if we built church planters and leaders to join existing churches in the neighborhood regardless of affiliation? *Originally posted in 2015, edited, and reposted.* I remember when I started my first church plant in 2009. Within a couple of years a ton of new church plants poured into the same place […]

Bi-vocationalism means having different sources of income rather than one single job. 4 years ago I wrote this blog post on the topic challenging the notion that ministry should be full-time work (proponents are largely unaware what a privilege full-time ministry is). The Unequivocal Reality of Bi-Vocational Church Planting With every passing year it becomes more […]

Recently, I’ve observed an increase in church plants in my city. I can’t say whether this is an increase over previous years, but new church plants are becoming savvier with social media so maybe I’m just noticing them more.

This post was the precursor to about 3 chapters in my book, “Thrive” now available. *** In this post I want to use a model many of us are familiar with to describe how to build a growing church plant.
