The National Mission Board is seeking men who have been called to the ministry of church planting. At present, we are targeting the states of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, and Maryland, but we are open to other areas as well.
Here's what we can offer prospective pastors/planters.
4. Strategic planning
5. Partial funding
6. Connection to a network of supportive churches
7. The ability to orchestrate in-house financing when it's time to buy property
We are looking for men who are called by God to establish churches, primarily through launching local Bible study groups or home meetings. As these groups mature, we would like to assist you in transitioning the group you lead into a larger worship gathering, and eventually, a local church. When it's time, we can also assist you in acquiring property or worship space.
If you are interested in pursuing this opportunity, it would also be necessary for you to be bi-vocational and capable of earning an outside income during the early days of this process until your newly established church can become financially self-supporting. The funding we can supply in the early stages would be primarily used toward renting meeting space or assisting with community outreach expenses.
If any of this sounds interesting to you, please review our beliefs and application process at NationalMissionBoard.com. Don't hesitate to reach out the NMB Director (Pastor John Stange) if you have any additional questions.
