Some baby steps to pioneer church planting, Part I

Find your supporters. The good thing about not getting a full-time pay to begin your church plant is that there is a lot of pressure on you to gather a team of prayer supporters. These are an important part of the team, they are the ones who will pray the church into existence, the ones who will be following your progress and supporting you from the grandstand.

A couple of other advantages come from gathering your prayer/financial supporters:
  1. You are forced to explain what you are aiming to do over and over again as you try to gather supporters. This helps you clarify your vision.
  2. Some of your supporters may point you to new opportunities, ideas, people, resources.
  3. Some of your supporters may want to join you in the launch team.
