One of the most frequently asked questions I get is,“Is it possible to predetermine whether or not a church planter will be successful?” Here’s the answer: There are two abilities that predetermine a church planter’s success:
1- The ability to recruit a worship leader
2- The ability to raise funds
If a church planter doesn’t demonstrate these two abilities by the time he launches weekly services, it seems that his church never really gets off the ground in a big way.
Of course, there are dozens of other abilities that are needed to launch a church successfully (the ability to teach, the ability to cast vision, the ability to build a team, etc.) but these two seem to be more indicative of future success than all the others.
Has this piqued your interest? I hope so.
P.S. If you are a church planter (or if you know a church planter) check out my free resources for Church Planters. I give away over $75 of my resources to any church planter who requests them. Click here to request them.
