Do Not Fear: A Way Forward to Funding Church Plants

When God calls us to serve Him, He also deals with our fears and worries.

Jesus came up and said to them, “All authority (all power of absolute rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations [help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words], baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always [remaining with you perpetually—regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion], even to the end of the age.”Matthew 28:18-20

Consequently, as disciples of Jesus multiply, and new churches are planted among least-reached peoples, a new need develops.

How do you support the pastor of a newly-planted church?

A Way Forward For Church Plants

Newly planted churches are often small fellowships with few assets. And churches who sent the church planter may be limited in their ability to supply their needs.

That’s one of the places where Global Disciples comes in.

We see developing a small business as a way to resolve the issue. It offers a way forward from a problem that often hinders a disciple-maker from fulfilling the mission of sharing the Gospel.

Take Prem, for example. He’s a Nepali church planter with a desire to serve the Lord well. He recently came to a small business training we held. And he discovered something that has renewed his heart and his mind for mission.

Prems example

Prem said, “I came to faith 7 years ago. My wife and I went to India for seminary. I knew God was calling me for ministry but I didn’t know where or how to start after seminary. I had my family and I had fear of doing ministry and providing for my family. And, I thought, “what would my family and my church think If I’m not earning money?”

“I thank God for the small business development teaching,” Prem continued. “Now I know where and how to start my ministry! I can start a business, and through that I can be a good witness in the community. I will do business and serve God. So my fear is gone!”

Do not fear [anything], for I am with you;
Do not be afraid, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you;
I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].
Isaiah 41:10

Do Not Fear!

We often see Global Disciples’ small business development training help bring confidence to church planters.

A small business can be an economic boost. But it also provides a way to effectively interact and witness in a community.

And it gives the church planter—and his family—an identity. And, importantly some peace of mind as they share the Gospel of Jesus with those who have yet to hear it.

Global Disciples Canada is a Christian mission organization that trains local leaders living near least-reached communities to multiply disciples for Christ. One-third of our world hasn’t heard the Good News of Jesus. Yet. Global Disciples refers to these as “least-reached” people, and fewer than 10% of all missionaries work among these groups. We live in a time where many of these people are within reach of a local church. Through our simple and effective strategy of training and coaching, believers share the Gospel in their own nations and cultures. Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations,” and we’re committed to doing just that. If you are looking for a Christian mission organization to partner with to become a better disciple and help make disciples, connect with us today!
