Episode 279: Training a Launch Team

Have your plans, prepare well, but hold those plans loosely. 

In Episode 279 of the NewChurches Q&A Podcast, Daniel and Ed discuss developing a launch team for a missional attractional church. Here’s Chris with today’s questions:

We are planting a church this year and are in the launch team, developmental, and training phase. What would you focus on if you could go back and train a launch team for a missional attractional model?

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • The disadvantage of focusing so much on other people’s church models. 
  • The importance of being dynamic and open to shifting things.
