New churches come in a variety of expressions, from traditional church plants to missional communities to multi-site campuses. Resonate Global Mission and Pastor Church Resources have compiled a resource to assist classes, as well as parent churches and church planters, in their church planting efforts. This Classis Resource for Church Planting gathers a number of church planting resources into one place, such as:
- Church planter assessments, grants, training, and coaching that Resonate provides or recommends
- Information from Church Order on ordination, how to form an emerging church, and how to organize a church
- Sample documents that can be adapted to your context, like an MOU for the church plant and its parent church, a sample leadership team handbook, or model bylaws
You can access the Classis Resource for Church Planting below, or find it on Resonate's Partner Support Resources section, under the "Parent Church & Classis Resources" heading.
