20 Principles of Church Planting

I shared this workshop yesterday @ Multiplicity in Houston, TX.  I think the content was great but the presentation was sub-par.  

Here are the 19 Principles of Church Planting:
  1. Spiritual Mathematics – God + Zero = Everything
  2. Faith
  3. Family
  4. Fundraising – You must raise money to get past year 2.
  5. Payback – Give 10%+ to missions
  6. Prayer & Fasting
  7. Life-Change
  8. Personal Growth – Leaders are learners
  9. Staffing – Hire by faith
  10. Good Times – learn to have fun
  11. The Turtle – we must take more drastic risks
  12. Creative Elements – use every creative means possible
  13. Repeat Customers – get people to come back
  14. Originality
  15. Online Portals – use the online resources
  16. Flexibility
  17. Planning Precision – plan ahead
  18. Humility
  19. Gum Under the Table – stick to your mission
  20. Multiplication – reproduce your church
It was a lot of fun, but certainly not my best presentation.  I am so glad God called me to plant and not to be a workshop presenter.
