MNA is sponsoring a streamlined training event for new planters within 12 months of their launch date (before or after) that will, in a workshop format, deal with the three main facets of launching a new church:

  • Preparation
  • Gathering
  • Launching

Presenters and topics to be covered in this jam packed three day training include:

  • Ted Powers on Preparing to Launch including confirming your call deciding where to plant, budgeting and fundraising, pros and cons of Bivocational ministry, working with and building your core group and launch team, and developing your philosophy of ministry
  • Hutch Garmany and Leon Brown on Networking, Gathering, and Evangelism and Managing the Ministry
  • Al Dayhoff introducing Evangelize Today (
  • Planting the Multi-Everything Church
  • Why Plant Churches?

The modules will answer these questions:

  • How do I actually go about planting a church? What are my primary activities and responsibilities?
  • How do I develop a budget?
  • How do I make connections in the community? How do I gather and work with a core group?
  • What’s the difference between a “launch team” and a “core group”?
  • What’s involved in developing a vision, a philosophy of ministry, and a plan for my church plant?
  •  What’s involved in moving towards launching public worship? How do I know it’s the right time for that?
  • What’s involved in finding the right facility and location?
  • And…“Three Key Stages of Launching a Church”

And as an added benefit…you can schedule a time of personal consultation on fundraising with Fred Marsh, MNA’s Associate Coordinator. Appointments will need to be scheduled in advance; more details coming.
