small group

As part of the church planting series that we have been walking through, I would like to break the idea of fundraising into two sections.  Today, I want to talk a little bit about the idea of fundraising… next week, Jon Sturdevant will share a little bit about how to raise funds for the church you are planting. Church planters, myself included, have an odd relationship with fundraising.  Our practical sides recognize the importance of […]

Church Planting
