Transcript of Church Plant Prospectus

Church Plant Business Prospectus About Us: Aaron Marcelli (Lead Pastor) Aaron grew up in a Christian home in Canton, Ohio. During a week of summer camp God spoke to Aaron and called him to a life of ministry.

Aaron went to Bible college at Tennessee Temple University and spent two years on staff at a large church in Dalton, Georgia. In May of 2010 Aaron married his wife Katy. Together they have accepted the call and challenge of moving to a new city and starting a new church. In preparation for the task of starting a new church Aaron and Katy have been a part of several training events and completed the school of church planting in Dallas, Georgia. Freedom Church The church has been given the name Freedom Church so that even the name tells the message of freedom that is found in a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Freedom Church will be a new, outreach focused church body started in downtown Chattanooga with plans to stay in downtown and continue to serve the needs of that community. Though the church is still in the "pre-launch" phase it is already becoming connected with other churches and church planting organizations. A new, relevant church coming to downtown Chattanooga Freedom Church Core Values: Risk - We will act in faith by taking God-directed risks and always be looking to try creative and innovative methods of mentoring life change.

Integrity - We will be fair and honest in our dealings with business and people.

Community - We desire to be a place where people can be open because they feel accepted and safe. A safe community eliminates the need to wear a mask and results in the sharing of the emotional, physical, and spiritual.

Outreach - We will function with the focus of reaching those outside the church in need of God. Our contact information: Freedom Church: Address: 3712 Ringgold Rd. Suite 202 Chattanooga, TN 37412

Website: www.AaronMarcelli.org Why? Why Downtown Chattanooga? Through prayer nad conversations we have become certain that God wants us to start our church in downtown Chattanooga. Though we could have moved anywhere (or nowhere at all), we feel led to serve the needs of the downtown area and be a part of that culture.

There are many physical and spiritual needs among the people who live in homes, apartments, college campuses, or on the streets around downtown. This is the area of Chattanooga where there are the most needs and seemingly the least amount of growing, relevant churches. Why Partner With Us? We believe God has given us a vision to launch a new, growing and exciting church. Part of that involves spending time getting acclimated to the community in Chattanooga and building relationships there before church services ever begin. In order to do this most effectively, a church planter should be able to be "full time." For the first couple of years, until the church has grown and is self-supporting, being a full time church planter requires the financial support of businesses, individuals, and other churches.

Giving of any amount one time or on a monthly basis will support eternal work and allow people's lives to be changed with the message of Jesus Christ. Starting any new business requires many resources and a church is no exception to this. Meeting space, equipment, salaries, advertising materials, and outreach resources are some of the needs that exist in launching the church.

Your partnership will help Freedom Church get off to a strong start and provide momentum in growth and becoming self-supporting. A budget has been put in place for the first two years of the church plant. This allows the church to know just how much is needed and ensures the money will be used wisely.
