BENEFITS & EXPECTATIONS

There are advantages to being a part of any family.  There are also certain expectations and obligations one must mind to support a healthy kinship.  Below, you can learn about some of the perks associated with joining Pillar's family of pastors/churches.  However, we do not encourage anyone to join our network simply for what they can get out of it.  Rather, we are looking for those that want to consistently give and receive as we strive to build deep relationships together, while serving as comrades in service to Christ. 

 

TYPES OF CHURCHES

In our network, we have 3 categories of churches: Plants, Revitalizations, and Sending Churches.    While there is a baseline group of benefits for ALL in-network churches, we have identified 3 subsets of benefits specifically tuned for a church's current life-stage.
 

 
 

CHURCH PLANTS

DEFINITION

A church plant is a new missionary endeavor where like-minded, healthy churches birth new congregations, through a Kingdom-oriented mitosis that divides resources and personnel to take the gospel to new locations where the gospel is needed.

  • Post-launch assessments by qualified staff

CHURCH REVITALIZATIONS

DEFINITION

A revitalization is an attempt to move a declining, established church back on the right path, towards stronger doctrine, a kingdom focus, and sustainable growth.  We feel that revitalizations are a critical element in the evangelization of North America.

 

BENEFITS FOR REVITALIZERS

  • Help from our professional marketing/graphics team (based on need)
  • Ability to plant with other SBC entities as a Pillar member
  • FREE Online Giving Services
  • Monthly coaching sessions
  • FREE Payroll Assistance

SENDING CHURCHES

DEFINITION

Sending churches include healthy, gospel-saturated churches that are ready to join our efforts in planting/revitalizing.  These churches vary in size but are critical to getting the gospel out in the US, through sending personnel and capital to help build new churches.

 

BENEFIT FOR SENDERS

  • $2,500 in Startup Funds for official Pillar Church Plants (sent out from Sending Churches)
  • Ability to plan with Pillar staff regarding future church plants and team members
  • You have the primary voice in determining who is qualified to plant from your church
  • Opportunities to mentor other planters/revitalizers across the country in a deep, Paul/Timothy relationship.
  • Option to partner with other churches in your region to help plant a church together.
