5 Church Plant Models
(Ed Stetzer)
Church Planting Models
(Part 2)

What does it mean to plant Jesus and not churches?
Neil said that we often plant "seed substitutes" instead of the real thing. What do you think are some "seed substitutes" that your ministry needs to be aware of?
Don't plant churches, plant Jesus
(Neil Cole)
Neil challenged us to spend our time on sowing and harvesting, but to let God focus on growing. What does sowing, growing and harvesting look like in your ministry? Are you spending most of your time sowing? What needs to change?
Rethinking Church
(Francis Chan)
1. Consider the definition of the term "model"
- are guides, but not exact representations of what we do
2. Operate from one model, learn from the others
- there are strengths and weaknesses of every model
3. Pick a model that fits with your giftedness and context.
- a favorite model at conferences doesn't mean it will
work for you or where you are planting
4. Remember the model is just a tool, not the goal.
- don't put your faith in a model
5. Don't confuse a model with a value.
- all models should be leading people to mission
Traditional Model
- church planters had a call to fulfill Great Commission
- they would move to an area with an evangelistic passion
to share the gospel with as many as they could
- converts became the foundational base of the church
- most common choice among minority cultures
Too many church planters fall in love with a model of church planting before falling in love with the people being reached
evangelistic zeal
- low financial costs
growth is often supported by a homogeneous focus
focus in a homogenous group can result in a narrow vision
Launch Big Model
- probably the most used model
- a church planter usually begins with a core/launch team
- they seek to build a core group-numbering somewhere
between 30-60 people
- the church will host a large event or a series of mini-events
to build awareness of the church and her upcoming launch
the church can grow quickly in an event-based, consumeristic, spiritually seeking, church-inquisitive culture
takes some high-end funding
The Missional Incarnational Model
- comes in all different shapes and sizes
they are relational and authentic (have an internal and external community orientation)
they embrace a holistic mission
some are reactionary against the established church
Organic Church Model
- no unhealthy additives
- Neil Cole (Organic Church); Felicity Dale (Simple Church);
David Garrison, Francis Chan (House Church)
- biblical foundation: Acts 2
many do an incredible job at discipleship
they typically release believers into areas of leadership and service at a higher rate than other models
one will not find the singing to be excellent, the teaching and preaching to be proficient, and the children/youth programs to be safe, secure, and engaging
The Multi-Site/Satellite Model
- this is an emerging model
- church goers attend a multi-site church
multi-site campuses are well resourced-fiscally, organizationally, structurally, and professionally
satellite campuses can be a great incubator for developing new and young leaders
multi-site campuses can be built around a personality
- 4-6 Sundays after the launch are critical
- they utilize business, systematic and organizational savvy
- popular among middle to upper-class people
- launching big is almost the norm when starting a majority
culture church today
you can potentially attempt to grow with the wrong people
most Launch Large church plants never actively plant another church
many critique the consumeristic and atheological mechanics used to reach people
"What you win them with is what you win them to." (Neil Cole)
4 Main Elements of Missional Incarnational Church Plants
1. They desire to incarnate in the community.
2. They are highly relational.
3. They engage in a holistic mission.
4. They disciple their way into a church.
they do discipleship really well
some value demonstration (or service) over proclamation
some practitioners have loosened their grip on solid, sound orthodoxy
Main Element of the Organic Church
Less is more.
- conducive settings: restricted areas, closed countries,
college campuses, large apartment complexes, urban or
high-density areas; people who are disenfranchised, weary,
or intimidated by the more institutional church
they typically only have the gospel and community
some Organic Churches have a weak ecclesiology
They just do life, but they don't do church. (Ed Stetzer)
Main Elements of a Multi-Site/Satellite Model
Satellite campus shares mission, vision, structure, strategy, and budget with main campus
"One church in multiple locations"
Satellite campus shares mission, vision, structure, strategy, and budget with main campus
Satellite campus shares mission, vision, structure, strategy, and budget with main campus
Satellite campus shares mission, vision, structure, strategy, and budget with main campus
Satellite campus shares mission, vision, structure, strategy, and budget with main campus
this model "McDonaldizes" the church
