New Church Start B. Satellite Worship Site C. Specialized Outreach Ministry! Introduction to New Church Reproduction, Center for United States Missions

2 IV. TWENTY-FIVE+ MODELS OF INTENTIONAL CHURCH MULTIPLICATION A New Church Start: Intentionally organized gathering. Comes together on a regular basis for worship and/or Bible study. Intended to grow into an LCMS congregation in the SED: 1. Missionary Model. Send a trans-cultural missionary out of your church - similar to Antioch in Acts 13:1-3. This is often done by sending out international missionaries 2. Send a Team Nearby Model. Ephesus spawned six other churches in Asia Minor by sending out church planting teams along natural travel routes. Churches identify natural expansion opportunities based on demographic growth or travel patterns. 3. Raise Up a Timothy Model. Raise up, mentor and send a missionary from your own congregation - EIIT, SMP. 4. Let My People Go Model. 20% or more of mother church is hived off and sent out as a strong core group for the new church. 5. Let My Pastor Go Model. Pastor is sent from the local church to plant new church. 6. Partner Church Model. One or more churches 'pitch in' with a Mother (Sending) Church, perhaps forming a Church Planting Coalition or Network. 7. Side by Side Model. Church within a church; new church or ministry sharing facilities with an existing church. 8. House Church Model. A group of people small enough to meet face-toface in a home, who covenant together with God and each other to be the church under the authority of Christ and guidance of the Holy Spirit. They see themselves as autonomous, under their own pastoral leadership (not overseen by a pastor who is physically separate from the group). Inexpensive, reproducible, relational, interactive. Not facility- or program-dependent. Organic and Simple are also used to describe this model. 9. Launch Large Model. New church launch is delayed until a larger ( ) and sustainable number of disciples are committed to the new church - often with disciples hived from a mother church and/or other partner churches.! Introduction to New Church Reproduction, Center for United States Missions

3 10. Purpose Driven Model. Intentionally organizes the new church around five purposes of church: worship, ministry/service, evangelism, fellowship, discipleship. 11. Child Care Model. Begins with high-quality, Christian child care ministry, draws and grows the church from this ministry to families. Eg., LCMS Open Arms Child Care model. 12. Marketplace Model. Builds relationships with unchurched people and draw partial financial support from a marketplace ministry (holistic health, fitness center, coffee house, etc). Assimilates new people into coaching relationships and / or missional communities, and ultimately into a congregation. 13. Traditional Model. New church replication of a traditional or mother church. Attracts Christians and unchurched to engage in a quality, biblical ministry which is often staff, program and facility driven. 14. Mosaic or Multi-Ethnic Model. Intentionally creates an inclusive church culture for multiple ethnic groups. 15. Ethnic Immigrant Model. Gathers ethnic immigrants with indigenous ethnic culture and leadership. 16. Eclectic or Hybridized Model. Components of various church multiplication models are knit together to best reach the unique context of a designated mission field. 17. Internet Church. Proclaims the Gospel and disciples new and Christian people through the internet. 18. School Model. Establishment of a Christian school as a mission outreach, gathering families together as a new church start. Many Lutheran congregations were started in this way. 19. Cowboy Church, Biker Church, Hip-Hop Church, etc. These are highly contextualized church planting models which focus on a specific demographic or people community and seek to reflect cultural elements of these subcultures as they are appropriate. Emphasis on context, attraction, evangelism and church planting. 20. Church Planting Movement Model. Launching a ministry or movement that is intentional about multiplication of new churches, rather than planting a single new church. 21. Symbiotic model Affinity groups intentionally charter separate churches yet continue sharing resources (administrative, financial systems, leadership) in a mutually beneficial way to maximize! Introduction to New Church Reproduction, Center for United States Missions

4 stewardship of limited resources yet create space for increased participation in local leadership roles and representation regionally and nationally. B. Satellite Worship Site: Expanded Mission outreach of a congregation. Not intended to become a separate LCMS congregation. 22. Multi-Site Model. One church doing ministry on multiple campuses with a called campus pastor for each site; also known as Satellite Model. Characterized by multiple ministries, multiple places of ministry, multiple ministers, but with one central organization and one senior pastor. Shares a common vision, budget, leadership and board. 23. Missional Community Model. A group or groups of disciples which engage their community through 'neighboring' and servant evangelism while practicing a regular rhythm of UP [worship], IN [discipleship] and OUT [intentional community engagement]. Conversion-driven (making new disciples). 24. Cell Church Model. Organizes new church around cells which both learn discipleship and do the ministry. Emphasizing smaller, personal communities, they are churches of small groups. Two main components, the cell and a large celebration service. The cell is most important in this model. Some large cell churches also have a congregation comprised of cells; multiple congregations form the large celebration group (cell > congregation > celebration). 25. Adoption or Re-Start Model (Re-plant). One church adopts a church that closes and re-plants or re-starts it as a new congregation or as a site of the adoptive church. C. Specialized Ministry: A specific type of ministry offered by a congregation, such as a ministry to Hispanics, ministry to the deaf, etc. Not intended to grow into an LCMS separate congregation. 26. International Friendship Center Model. Gathers immigrants or international students for conversation, friendship, home invitation, health and business references, resourcing and domestic training as well as for faith sharing (eg. POBLO s friendship and training centers). 27. Other Models may be determined by needs, context or environment, demographic or lifestyle groups, etc.!

6 TWELVE MISSIOLOGICAL PRINCIPLES FOR NEW CHURCH REPRODUCTION 1. THE BOSS PRINCIPLE Christ is LORD of the church and church multiplication, and He has a vision for your new 'daughter' church/ministry. Ephesians 1:22-23 Acts 16: THE PRAYER-FOCUS PRINCIPLE Prayer is an indispensable resource for focusing on God's power and wisdom in each phase of church mulltiplication. Philippians 3:7-11 Colossians 4:2-4 Matthew 9:38 3. THE NEHEMIAH PRINCIPLE God's vision leads to prayerful planning, the result of which is comprehensive Task List set out upon a Time Line. Habakkuk 2:2-3 Amos 3:7 Luke 14:28 Proverbs 16:9 4. THE BARNABAS PRINCIPLE Every church planter/mission leader needs a mentor. A mentor is someone who has been where you want to go and is willing to help you get there. Acts 11:25-26 Acts 16: THE TEAM LEADER PRINCIPLE The church planting pastor/mission leader is most effective as part of a team on which he/she serves as the Visionary Leader. Acts 13:1-3 Acts 14:23 6. THE MISSION PRINCIPLE The central purpose and work of the new mission will always be to be used by the Holy Spirit in such a way that people place their trust in Jesus Christ, and grow to maturity as His followers. Luke 15 Matthew 28:18-20 # Introduction to New Church Reproduction, Center for United States Missions

7 7. THE LEADERSHIP PRINCIPLE Leadership development lies at the heart of the new church's mission - and the most important quality to develop is SPIRITUAL MATURITY. Ephesians 4: Timothy 2:2 8. THE BRIDGE PRINCIPLE Understanding and communicating sensitively and respectfully to the hearts and minds of people in the target community is essential to reaching them effectively with the gospel. 1 Corinthians 9:19-23 Acts 17: THE MAGNET PRINCIPLE When God plants a church, there should be widespread community awareness and interest. Matthew 5:14-16 Acts 2:5-6 Acts 4: THE BALANCE PRINCIPLE The church planter/mission leader's walk with God, family life and ministry must be in biblical balance. 1 Timothy 3:4 Ephesians 5: THE MULTIPLICATION PRNCIPLE Healthy churches will reproduce and new church multiplication should be envisioned and planned right from the new church's beginning. Acts 8:1b, 4 Acts 13:1-3 Psalm 127: THE JOSEPH PRINCIPLE Attending to the organizational and administrative matters will protect and stabilize the new church/ministry, and enable it to grow in a healthy way. Acts 6:1-4 1 Corinthians 14:40! Introduction to New Church Reproduction, Center for United States Missions
