Church Planting Budget

While a first-year budget may seem like a venture into the unknown, it is important to put in what you estimate the unknowns to be so that you arrive at some semblance of a viable budget. A clear budget is essential to establishing a clear financial plan. Anticipating challenges allows us to make appropriate changes in order to avoid the potential problems or maximize the coming opportunities.

Is There a Different Way to Do Church?

A new church model is emerging to effectively reach this generation. Micro churches—as a fresh expression of the bride of Christ living in community—are flourishing in many parts of the world. In Micro Church Networks, Larry Kreider explains from decades of first-hand experience how these networks fit the needs, call, and passion of believers from many generations. Typical questions such as “How are micro churches different from small groups?” and “How do micro church networks relate to churches with a more traditional structure?” are well-answered in this timely publication. God is always ready to do a new thing. Larry helps us perceive this new move of God and recognize the significant role of micro church networks in the advancement of God’s Kingdom in our present time.
