Dr. Ray Ortlund joined us for our 2019 annual retreat and delivered a timely encouragement to our Summit Collaborative pastors. The churches we long for will require diligence and wisdom in doctrine, culture, and spirituality.
After moving from Durham to Winston-Salem, NC in 2016, Pastor Kyle Mercer led a successful launch of Two Cities Church. He explains the importance of your launch team and emphasizes the relational nature of those pre-launch meetings and gatherings.
Please feel free to use or modify this sample launch team assessment.
Your first thirty people who join you will look like the next 100 people who join you, so completing an assessment and knowing the people who are joining you is important.
Steward your momentum through relational gatherings, communication, and casting vision. Kyle also covers the questions you’re asking about when to launch and how to market your new church to your new community. Don’t miss the opportunities to follow up and create the culture you need to sustain longterm health.
