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:
- Spiritual Mathematics – God + Zero = Everything
- Fundraising – You must raise money to get past year 2.
- Payback – Give 10%+ to missions
- Prayer & Fasting
- Personal Growth – Leaders are learners
- Staffing – Hire by faith
- Good Times – learn to have fun
- The Turtle – we must take more drastic risks
- Creative Elements – use every creative means possible
- Repeat Customers – get people to come back
- Online Portals – use the online resources
- Planning Precision – plan ahead
- Gum Under the Table – stick to your mission
- 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.
