    How Can Send North America Help My Church Start Churches?

    Every church can be a part of planting new churches. The level to which your church becomes involved is up to you. There are two levels of involvement, and all are extremely important.


    Supporting Church.
    A Supporting Church partners with a church plant through praying, participating and/or providing. Often there will be multiple supporting churches partnering with a particular plant, helping to meet different needs.


    Sending Church.
    A Sending Church is responsible for a new church plant until the plant is self-sustaining, self-governing and self-propagating.



    A Praying church commits to praying specifically for a planter, city and region utilizing prayer resources supplied to them by NAMB and regional staff. There are numerous ways your church can do this. We will be glad to share ideas.
    A Participating church participates in church planting by involving its members personally in ministry with the church planter. For example, your church may want to send mission teams to assist church plants or seek to mobilize individuals within your church to be sent as short- or long-term missionaries as a part of the planting team.
    As a church develops a closer relationship with a church planter, some find that there are other tangible needs for which they can provide. If your church is able to participate in this way you could have the opportunity to provide for some of the specific needs many church plants have during their critical first years.
