Church Starting Team


Church starting strategies and funding requests go through the MWBC Church Starting Team. The team is composed of the six regional Church Planting Catalysts, as well as the MWBC Church Starting Catalyst and the MWBC Executive Director.
The Church Starting Team meets face-to-face four times each year, in addition to conference calls as needed.
Pieces of the Church Starting Team process include:

  • A Planning Preparation
  • A Planning Profile
  • A Planning Projection
  • A Cooperative Agreement.

A Church Planter Assessment is requested for each church planting couple. (See Assessments under the Process tab)
In cooperation with the North American Mission Board, a Personnel Information Form is to be completed. Financial assistance is limited and short-term.
