He exhibits exemplary Christian character and is supportive of the Baptist Faith and Message (2000) and the Cooperative Program. He exhibits certain competencies and strengths necessary for the activities of church planting while remaining humbly committed to personal and professional development.
A Church Planter Apprentice is a man who, as an aspiring church planter, is willing to spend up to a year in an endorsed learning environment (Church Planting Center or Church Planting Church) following God’s call, developing competencies and skills and practicing the activities of church planting all in preparation for planting a church.
