The thought of raising funds is one of the biggest roadblocks preventing potential church planters from experiencing what God has called them to do. We believe if God calls you, he will provide.
The best practice is for your church to be fully resourced before it launches. This allows the church and you to devote all of your time and energy toward growing a healthy church that is helping people meet, know and follow Jesus. Funding for specific church planting projects usually comes from four
Parent or partnering churches

Planting a church is one of the most challenging and rewarding things I have ever done, and I don't know where we would be without Converge North Central. They helped me navigate tough situations that could have stalled the work, connected me with other pastors and planters and have given me the opportunity to invest in others. Converge has been with me every step of the way.
