21 NCS Rally—Building Your Church Planting Team Paul ’ s Example—Gifts A more successful team-strategy—one that seems to be reflected in the Scripture—is the deployment of teams whose members complement one another in their gifts and ministries. Paul made strategic use of such a team.... These team members were of various ages and backgrounds and possessed complementary gifts. Paul often left team members behind, or sent them to places visited previously in order to complete the cycle and help develop mature responsible local churches. (Hesselgrave, Planting Churches…)

22 NCS Rally—Building Your Church Planting Team More on Gifts…... a team effort of multi-gifted and committed people who address the social and spiritual needs of an unreached people, resulting in members of the target population placing their allegiance in Christ as Savior from sin, congregating together, and empowered by the Holy Spirit and church planters to mature in their gifts and skills so that they can repeat the cycle in other unchurched areas... (Tom Steffen, Passing the Baton…)

23 NCS Rally—Building Your Church Planting Team The Future Orientation Of A Church Planting Team One orientation is for the members to be part of an ongoing church planting team. With this orientation, the team moves into the church planting setting, evangelizes and trains a core group, and moves out to repeat the process again and again. Other times, the team members participate in a plant together, and then some or all of the members enlist a team of their own and move from the current plant to do multiple plants.

24 NCS Rally—Building Your Church Planting Team The Future Orientation Of A Church Planting Team Either way, the idea is ongoing church planting. The establishment of a new church alone is not an adequate objective for the planting team. What should be in view is the establishment of a congregation that will have both the vision and capacity for itself reproducing.

25 NCS Rally—Building Your Church Planting Team The Future Orientation Of A Church Planting Team Another orientation, commonly expressed among some of the Acts 1:8 Churches who participate in planting churches in multihousing communities, is for a team to be enlisted from the Acts 1:8 Church ’ s membership. This team goes into the targeted community and begins a church. Their four-stage assignment is (1) to plant a church, (2) identify the potential leaders in the new church, (3) enlist and train these leaders, and (4) go back to the partner church.

26 NCS Rally—Building Your Church Planting Team The Future Orientation Of A Church Planting Team The team members ’ commitment is to a one- time ministry, not a lifetime ministry assignment. However, some ministers of mission report that members for one project often participate in this church planting activity numerous times.

27 NCS Rally—Building Your Church Planting Team The Future Orientation Of A Church Planting Team third orientation A third orientation is for the team to evangelize the community, become part of the core group, and provide initial leadership in the new church. As ministry leaders in the new church, they identify and train other new leaders and stay with the new church as it organizes. In some settings, little difference is evident between those who are in the core group and those in the church planting team.

28 NCS Rally—Building Your Church Planting Team The Future Orientation Of A Church Planting Team The idea in identifying some persons as members of the church planting team at this point might be to spell out specific responsibilities, to raise levels of commitment expected, and to heighten visibility and accountability of certain leadership roles in distinction to other workers and members of the core group.
