Church Planting

International Servants spends a lot of time on church planting. Paul describes the process in 3 phases.

In the first phase, the Pioneering phase, the church is just starting and a leader/pastor that is passionate about spreading the Gospel. At this point, the church, as it grows, is funded 100%.

As the congregation develops a steady attendance, it enters the Parenting phase.  A wood/leaf hut building is built and the church is expected to fund itself 50%.  

Once the church has grown enough, moves into the Partnering phase.  The church is expected to fund 100% of it’s activities and a permanent structure is built of concrete.

Short term mission teams are involved with churches in the parenting phase and not in the pioneering or partnering stages.
