Church Planter Intensives
Our desire is to provide local pastors with the material and support to host and lead trainings in local Vineyard churches throughout the country. We've developed curriculum for 4 different church planting intensives: Discover, Health, Vision, and Growth.
All the tools that you'll need to use these trainings in your ministry environment including a Facilitator Guide, links to the corresponding videos with content, and suggestions for student interaction and exercises are provided below. Each intensive consists of 3 or 4 two plus-hour sessions which can easily be covered during a weekend intensive or as weekly training material.
Discover: The purpose of the Discover intensive is to help you process whether God is calling you to plant a Vineyard church by answering the questions, “What is God calling me to do in the larger sense?” “What might God be calling me to in relationship to church planting?” and "Do I have the necessary gifts and abilities to be a church planter?"
Vision: The purpose of the Vision intensive is to help you discover the biblical vision for planting new churches and what churches are meant to accomplish and to help you uncover the specific vision that God has given you for church planting and (if that weren't enough) the Vineyard's vision, values and distinctives for ministry.
Health: The purpose of this intensive is to help potential planters move forward in good health: themselves personally and their church plant. This will be accomplished through your teaching the material, and just as importantly, through the building of relationship in their interaction with you and others present, under the direction of the Holy Spirit.
Growth: The purpose of this intensive is to help potential planters and current pastors work through the dynamics of healthy church growth. This will be accomplished through your teaching the material, and just as importantly, through the building of relationship in their interaction with you and others present, under the direction of the Holy Spirit.
