Raising Money for your Church Plant

Funding Your Church PlantYesterday I met with 9 church planters here in San Diego. Admist the conversation, one guy told us how he raised $450,000 for the next five years. He got the idea from Funding Your Ministry: Whether You're Gifted or Not

His primary method was to approach local churches that would allow him to speak to 10 congregants. He then pitched his vision to these congregants and asked if they would be willing to make a monthly tithe commitment of $300, $500 or $1,000. There you have it, that is how he has $7,500 a month above and beyond his congregations tithe. [btw- If you want to support church planting in the South West, I'd be more than happy to take a monthly commitment!]

UPDATE: The Tentmaker Group has launched to help church planters raise funding.
