Helping churches in distress will grow your church.

James 1:27 (NLT) says, “Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress.” What if we viewed struggling churches through the same lens? The goal of church fostering is to help churches in distress by sharing the resources God has given us. By partnering with other churches you will change your culture to move from an inward focus to an outward focus.

What you can expect to learn.

  • A definition of Church Fostering.
  • How to send out missionaries from your congregation.
  • Creating boundaries for your leaders and congregation.
  • Distractions from the Great Commission.
  • Potential divisions among leaders.
  • The reality of spiritual warfare.
  • Caring for a hurting congregation.
  • Deciding who you send.
  • Changing the culture in your church.
  • Moving from an inward focus to an outward focus.
