Episode 3: Fundraising That Works

Raising support, developing partners, and finding funding for your church plant.

In Episode 3 of the New Churches Q&A Podcast, we discuss what the difference is. Here is Brian Alton’s question from Church 21 in Montreal, Quebec.

In a context with so few believers, what strategies would you recommend for church planters to expand their network in order to raise financial support?

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • The challenges of financing and church planting
  • Insight into church planting in Canada
  • How to build a support base for fundraising with individuals and churches

Shareable Quotes (#NewChurchesQA):

  • “Find one church with good connections.”
  • “Build relationships first.”
  • “Give churches an easy win.”
  • “Partner, partner, partner.”

Additional Resources:

  • Operation Epistle is a strategy that involves volunteers hand-addressing and applying first-class postage stamps to the mailers. These volunteers generally come from sponsoring churches around the country. In the end, the new church pays only printing costs and the start-up fee to open a qualified business reply mail account. Established church members or partner churches are often enthusiastic about participating in mission activities such as this.
