We have proven pathways that begin with preparation and leads you all the way to becoming a multiplying church. These pathways are the building blocks of establishing churches.
Missionary leaders & teams are called, trained, and sent by a local church or group of churches. Gospel Ventures provides a robust Preparation Pathway for missionary leaders who desire to start new churches.
Churches in a local region interdependently support the starting of new church. The focus is founding new disciples in their faith in areas that have a high number of unreached or post-Christian people groups.
The missionary team appoints indigenous leaders who will eventually lead the local church. The apostolic missionary leader and team may begin to phase out in order to go start more new churches.
The church is now led effectively by their own team of indigenous leaders (elders & deacons). With continued encouragement from the missionary leaders, they grow to spiritual maturity and effective mission
Local churches work together to prepare & send more apostolic missionary leaders & teams. They intentionally share resources, expertise, & leaders to work with apostalic leaders in and among new churches
