Chasing Sustainability
Mission and Fundraising in Church Planting
As a church planter, you have so many roles to juggle – community builder, disciple encourager, worship planner, leader developer, report writer, expectation manager… AND you have to raise money, too! Nothing will deplete your energy or stress you more than the anxiety that comes from reaching toward that elusive goal of “sustainability.”
Bring your entire leadership team and learn the basics of nonprofit fund development  (fundraising) that will help you in the quest for sustainability. Explore how a development process and the science of fundraising builds relationships that cultivates donors, leaders, advocates, cheerleaders AND disciples! Apply these practices to your context and come away with resources and tools for this important (and often maddening/tedious/intimidating/frustrating) work of fundraising.
