New Church Plants

Is there a neighborhood in your area or region or city where you need to consider planting a brand new congregation? Is there a neighborhood where you can multiply and add an additional site/congregation? For example, could you become ONE congregation in TWO or more locations?

Two models:

• Traditional church planter starting something brand-new, most times with a sponsoring congregation.
• Multi-site model. A church identifies a new neighborhood that needs a healthy church and initiates a new site, with a site pastor to lead that congregation.

Re-Plants of Existing Congregations

Are you a church that has had a wonderful history but simply needs to have a complete and fresh new start? Are you in a strategic location but the congregation has dwindled? Would your church consider kneeling in a posture of humility, placing EVERYTHING on the table with a “whatever it takes” attitude and re-planting the congregation in the same way that those who originally planted it did.

Two models:

• Independent Re-Plants: Much like a new church plant, these churches are existing congregations that choose to begin again with new vision.
• Missional Mergers: Two or more churches that recognize that in this new day they can be better together and choose to merge into a new congregation.

Fresh Expressions

Is there a creative and fresh expression of “doing church” that you have been considering? A creative environment to reach out to millennials? An inner city food bank or clothing depot that has developed a sense of community and has become in fact a “congregation”? New Canadians that have settled into your neighborhood and are longing for community? A café for artists and artisans with a sense of Christian community? We are only limited by our imaginations! Creative and imaginative experiments in communities all over Atlantic Canada must become our habit! Some will gain traction. Some won’t. But we’ll learn from them all.

A fresh expression is a creative, new expression of “church” in a new day. It can be a stand-alone “congregation” or often is an expression of “church” that becomes a “congregation within a congregation”.
