The Mission Church Tradition

Historically, denominations and religious organizations have planted mission churches around the world in an effort to promote their faith and transform the lives of foreign nationals. Although the results have been largely positive, some mission churches have had negative consequences for indigenous populations, occasionally creating controversies for denominations and church planters.

If you are a religious entrepreneur who is determined to launch a mission church, you'll need to navigate both denominational and geographical landscapes. If you are already part of a religious denomination, the first step is to talk with denominational representatives about global needs and the process for establishing a mission church in a new territory. Along the way, you will gain valuable insights about the best geographies for establishing a mission church, after which you can begin the process of gaining the linguistic and cultural expertise you need to make your mission church a success.

Maximizing Personal Creativity for Starting a Mission Church

Mission church entrepreneurs are highly committed individuals -- that's a given. But in addition to your personal commitment, you'll also need to apply a combination of critical and creative thinking. Without a creative mindset, you will quickly become overwhelmed by the practical requirements of your endeavor.

Our resources for enhancing personal creativity for entrepreneurship can get you started on the path to a more creative skill set. But to truly excel in the creative arena, you'll need to intentionally exercise your imagination and surround yourself with other highly creative individuals. In our experience, creative entrepreneurs are most effective when they leverage the synergistic benefits of team-based problem-solving and idea generation.
