Workshop Session 1: Developing a Church Planting Residency – 10 Best Practices of Churches that Want to Multiply
In this seminar, Dr. Ray Chang will share his insights on developing a scaleable model for developing a church planting pipeline in your local church. From small, medium to large, every church can develop a system and structure that can create a multiplication culture through the investment of future planters through a residency program. Similar to a medical residency, the planter will learn on the job how to plant and pastor a church and will experience different aspects of ministry. This will allow the planter to have a comprehensive learning experience so they can be better equipped for planting.
Time: Tuesday, 2:30 – 3:30pm
Location: AP Buildings - AP 9
