New To Planting?
Do you want to plant a new church but not sure where to start? The Center for Progressive Renewal is here to show you how!
Starting a new church is tons of fun and tons of work. We have worked with hundreds of new churches and learned a lot in the process. Here are some of the common challenges that church planters face and ways that we can help you meet them:
Know That You are Called: Sometimes it is hard to know if God is calling you to start a new church or if you are just feeling indigestion from the Mexican food you ate the night before! Work with CPR and take the Gallup Assessment for church developers. Our easy, online assessment will show you how you are likely to perform as a church planter in comparison to a national research group from 7 mainline denominations.
After taking the Gallup Assessment, spend 30 minutes talking to a CPR church planting specialist about your assessment results and your dreams of starting a new church. Our CPR Team can help you connect with training opportunities, coaching and denominational contacts.
Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail: Church planters are famous for using the “Ready, Fire, Aim” approach to starting a church. But there is a better way to start a church! Sign up today to take one ONLINE Church Planting 101 course, and we will help you develop a sound, strategic ministry plan that will ensure greater success as you start out on this great adventure.
Check the List Twice: There is a lot to remember when you are starting a new church. You have to think about how to network strategically in your mission field, set up websites, order business cards, set up accounting systems, database systems, small groups, ministry programs, advertising campaigns…the list goes on and on.
