Financing the Mission
One of the key things that I’ve learnt during the first seven months of my church planting residency with Churchplanters.com and Mountain Lake Church is: when it comes to planting a church it’s going to cost more money than you think. Ps David and Ps Shawn even go so far as identifying being able to “Finance the Mission” as one of five key factors of ‘successful planters.’ They put it like this: “The mission you write is the mission you underwrite.” Financing the mission is the lead planter/pastors job. It isn’t something you can ignore or delegate. Confront it, deal with it and get on with it. By the way Ps David Putman has put up a post today about this, check it out here.
