Incubating New Starts (A Churches Planting Churches Workshop) 

Presenters:  Dr. Peter Meier, Director: Center for US Missions
Dr. Tesfai Tesema, Addis Kidan Lutheran Church, San Francisco

(Sponsored by CNH District’s Mission Agency)

  • Do you want to see new starts planted that will reach new people?
  • Do you want to see the Gospel at work as people come to faith?
  • Do you dare to hope to reach those you love who are far from the faith?

Every day congregational members and their pastors are invited to come to this CNH-sponsored workshop.  We will pray, learn, and discover together how starting new to reach new often times means utilizing the resources and people we already have in new and different ways.

Friday, November 9 & Saturday, November 10
5pm start Friday (with dinner) through 5pm Saturday (continental breakfast and lunch provided)

Did you know that new starts
~        Don’t always require an advance site?

~        Don’t always require a new pastor as the first step?
~        Call for prayer and seeking God’s leading as essential elements?
~        Call us first to prepare our attitudes and ourselves?
~        Are about Gospel relationships more than the first Sunday worship service?

Dr. Meier shares the following about this seminar:

"Most intentional new starts are daughter church plants or multi-site plants or new gospel outreach ministries, sponsored by local congregations and/or circuits. We provide high-quality training for established congregations, empowering those courageous congregations to give birth to daughter and or multi-site churches and/or new ministries with Biblically missional, and organizational integrity. This two day intensive seminar includes process time for teams to develop initial plans for potential plants."
