‘Right Beside’ Sending Churches
Church planting and revitalization are critical matters for reaching Florida for Christ.
The 2016 Florida Baptist Convention budget has an allotment of two million dollars for this purpose. The role of the Florida Baptist Convention in this process is being ‘Right Beside’ the sending church. The strategy focuses upon the Biblical reality of churches planting churches. The sending church is fully accountable for the church being planted or revitalized.
Our desire is to provide a financial gift that will be released to the sending church. The sending church will determine the best utilization of this resource in the planting or revitalizing ministry.
The funds are available for a sending church involved in a church plant, multi-site, multi-venue, or revitalization. The process of requesting the funding begins by contacting your regional catalyst. The regional catalyst will guide you through the simple steps of making the request. We do not provide funds directly to a church planter or church plant. The resources are joyfully released to the sending church which determines the application of these funds.
We celebrate the following sending churches who have received support from the Cooperative Program dollars of the Florida Baptist Convention.
