Partnerships between the Baptist State Convention and other churches, associations and networks help facilitate the establishment of new churches.
Existing churches may partner with church plants in one of three ways — as a primary partner, as a cluster of church partners, or as a primary support partner. Here’s a brief description of each partnership model.
- Primary partners assume full responsibility for partnering with a new church.
- A cluster of church partners involves several churches (usually three to five) joining together to start a new church.
- Primary support partners provide a new church an event or activity that will help launch the new church, such as a survey, Backyard Bible Club or person to lead a Bible study.
Existing churches may also partner with church plants to provide needed materials, equipment or resources. These may include Bibles, audio/visual equipment, assisting with building or remodeling needs, or prayer support. Consider these and other ways you may partner with new church plants in North Carolina.
Associations & Networks
Associations and networks work with the church planting team and N.C. Baptist churches to plant new evangelistic, reproducing churches. Financial assistance may be provided for new church plants upon request of an association or network, satisfactory completion of the application process, and approval of the church planting team.
