10 Steps to Sponsoring A Growing, Healthy Multiplying Church

Step 1: The Pastor/leader must catch the revelation form God to Sponsor.

It all begins with the leader. Typically, as the Pastor goes so goes the church.

The pastor is the key to reaching the harvest through church sponsoring. If he is willing, almost always the people are willing. If the pastor is hesitant, the people will be reluctant to move ahead and sponsor. Consider the following questions:

10 steps to sponsoring a growing healthy multiplying church1
10 Steps to Sponsoring A Growing, Healthy Multiplying Church

1. Why would the Pastor not want to plant?

2. What questions will have to be answered to get the Pastor to consider partnering and sponsoring?

3. What does the congregation think about partnering and sponsoring?

"Church planting is the most effective means of evangelism under heaven."

Church Planting for a Greater Harvest-- Peter Wagner

"It takes all kinds of churches to reach all kinds of people." - Rick Warren

Step 2: Build a conviction to sponsor through prayer.

Need does not constitute burden.

Prayer is the critical component.

Pastors should make the time to take the time to spend time with God.

Step 3: Cast the vision to the entire congregation.

You have to get the people to “buy” into the sponsoring vision. Begin with key leaders. Put books into their hands. Take them to Sponsoring Starbuck’s Churches in a Folgers World, CPG conferences and attend the Partners in Church Planting Training Track with NAMB together.

In casting the vision beware of some obstacles you will have to clear.

1. Fear

2. Assets (What will it cost?)

3. Investment of friendships

4. Investment of leadership

5. Lack of expertise

6. Superiority (We can do it all)

7. Self-centeredness

8. Priority of ministry

9. Timing of the sponsoring role

10. Ownership

Step 4: Cultivate the resources

The sponsor church has many resources necessary to help a new church get going. The key four need to be cultivated:

1. Capital

2. Kin: Sorry no C! (a fishing pool for leaders and workers)

3. Care and supervision

4. Cultivation of team members

5 Reasons Why People Give To Church Planting

(for further help contact Greg Pena at gpena@namb.net)

1. Because they believe in the Church Planter.

2. Because they have a personal relationship with the person who asks for the gift.

3. Because they believe in the cause--they want to invest in ministry.

4. Because of the content of the communication--they are approached with a good presentation.

5. Because of the method of the communication--the more personal it is, the more successful it will be.

Avoid the 3 Biggest Mistakes In Church Sponsoring*

1. Moving forward with plans before the entire congregation has bought in and owns the vision

2. Poor planter selection and lack of a clear new church action plan (Planting is vogue right now but it is work)

3. Inability to release control of the new church *More assistance on the Top Ten Mistakes Sponsoring Churches Make can be found at the Church Planters Resources Café @ www.PlanterDude.comand Sponsoring Starbuck’s Churches in a Folgers World by Tom Cheyney and Rodney Harrison (Broadman & Holman Publishing December 2007).

Step 5: Reflect on the strategic opportunities.

Look around at the locations that might be good areas to plant. Determine the model you might utilize in sponsoring. You can find models on the Church Planting Village.

Step 6: Map out a PATH.

Take them to Sponsoring Starbuck’s Churches in a Folgers World, conferences and attend the Partner’s in Church Planting Training Track with NAMB together.

These training events will help

you develop a “Sponsoring

Church Action Plan.”

2. Remember to have an end result in mind

3. Advance strategically & purposefully

4. Calculate your progress & navigate the problems

Step 7: Make the Investment.

Anything worthwhile has a cost involved. A sponsor church will make five incredible investments:

1. Resources

2. Riches

3. Ranch Space

4. Reach Resources

5. Rate of Development

Sponsoring always costs something, but the results are always worth it!

Step 8: Commemorate the release.

When releasing the sponsoring team be sure to design a service that is a combination of commemoration,celebration and commission.

Always remember the trinity of releasing the new church plant!

How To “Let Go” of the New Church

  • Emotionally, keep telling yourself to let go!

It's not easy.

2. Continue to honor your financial commitments to the new church, but don't second-guess the decisions that the new church is making. Trust them!

How To “Let Go” of the New Church

3. Recognize your changing relationship with both the church planter and the new church.

4. As the sponsor, know when to pull the plug for good and let the new church stand on its own.

How To “Let Go” of the New Church

5. If the new church is not released, the relationship between the two churches will be troubled long-term. First, the sponsor church won't recover as quickly, because it will be focusing on the needs of two churches. And secondly, the new church won't develop rightly. It will either develop resentment or dependency (or both) toward the sponsor church. So releasing the new church is crucial to its long-term health.

How To Commemorate Its Success

1.Continue to pray for the new church publicly, with thankfulness to God for the lives that are being changed.

2.Celebrate the grand opening by video taping the service and playing parts of it to the sponsor church.

3.Have the planter come on Sunday night or Wednesday night and share an update of how the new church is progressing.

4.Celebrate the first baptism service. Take pictures and show them to the sponsor church.

How To Commemorate Its Success

5. Celebrate the first anniversary service. Recount how God has blessed and been at work during the first year.

6.Invite the new church to participate and go with you to the state evangelism meeting. Go with the planter to the Pastor's & Wives Retreat and other district functions. Move from acting like the "sponsor" church, to treating them as a "sister" church. (But just know that as the sponsor, you will always feel the pride a sponsor feels when your child does well!)

7. Schedule the formal church organization service at a time when people from the sponsor church can join in the celebration by attending.

Step 9:

Give attention to the recuperation.

The sponsor needs to concentrate on stabilizing. Make sure you regain your footing monetarily, spiritually, psychologically, numerically and relationally. This recovery time will often depend on the health of the sponsor prior to the birth.

How to Reload the Sponsor Church's Vision

4.Remember the following realities about the impact of sponsoring a new church:

a. Crowd revitalization - it usually takes 3-12 months to recover if 10% of your average attendance goes with the new church.

4.Remember the following realities about the impact of sponsoring a new church:

b. Economic revitalization - the time required for this will depend on the number of tither’s you have given and the length of time you have committed to support the new church.

How to Reload the Sponsor Church's Vision

c. Leadership revitalization - it usually takes 3-12 months to raise up new leaders to replace those who you send out in mission. In the sponsor church, the apprenticing of replacement leaders should begin in the pre-natal phase, before the new church is born. Lack of new leaders in the sponsor church indicates the need for improving your system of challenging, training and mobilizing people for ministry.

Step 10: Rebirth and Reproduce again.

A healthy church should be capable of rebirthing and reproducing every three to four years.

It is through reproducing churches we will be able to see whole regions taken for the glory of God, church planting movements arise and the Kingdom of God expand.
