ABOUT OUR PATHWAYS

We four have pathways, created to provide a clear pathway toward a missionary team’s goals. Here you can learn about each of our four pathways: Membership, Preparation, Planting, and Organizing.

MEMBERSHIP PATHWAY

(START HERE)

Membership is the first of our four pathways. We encourage you to complete this step before partnering with us on the other pathways.

PREPARATION PATHWAY

(6-24 Months)

Missionary leaders & teams are called, trained, and sent by a local church or group of churches. Churches build solid leadership development pathways to continue preparing “workers for the harvest.” Gospel Ventures provides a robust Preparation Pathway for missionary leaders who desire to start new churches.

PLANTING PATHWAY

(6-18 Months)

Churches in a local region interdependently support the starting of new church. These new churches are started by apostolic missionary leaders and teams. The focus is founding new disciples in their faith in areas that have a high number of unreached or post-Christian people groups.

ORGANIZING PATHWAY

(6 Months – 3 Years)

The missionary team appoints and develops indigenous leaders who will eventually become the team that leads the local church. While the apostolic missionary leader and team still continue to lead and give oversight to the new church, they may begin to phase out in order to go start more new churches.
