Church Planting Spouse Network

Couples go into church planting together. They are called, assessed, and sent as a unit. However, somewhere along the way many church planting spouses become disillusioned and lost in the field. Research has shown that a church plant is more likely to succeed if both the planter and the spouse recieve coaching and training. The CMC is committed to creating an environment where church planting spouses can find support, encouragement, and coaching. For more information on how to get connected and resourced go HERE.

Fund Raising | Scott Rhyno (Fund Developer of TWC) 

Fund Raising Resources

Raising money for a church plant is one of the most important parts of church planting. Raising funds takes vision and a clear way to communicate that vision. Unless you are independently wealthy, starting a church will take more money than you currently have at your disposal. The average church plant raises $100,000 in the first four years from outside support. Only 60% of those are self-sufficient by year four. To learn how to be a successful fund raiser go HERE

Become a Sending Church

Is your church ready to multiply? A sending church is responsible for church plants until they are self-sustaining, self-governing, and self-propagating. Serving a church planter as a sending church is incredibly generous, sacrificial, and rewarding. Learn more about becoming a sending church HERE.

Become a Multi-Site Church

One multiplying church expression gaining traction is the multi-site strategy. Multi-siting should not fully replace church planting; however, studies demonstrate it is producing kingdom fruit. Many innovative churches are choosing to campus AND plant. According to Leadership Network, approximately 5 million people worship in a multi-site church on any given weekend. Learn more about becoming a multi-site church by ordering Leadership Network’s Multisite Resource Kit.
