CBFNC partners with CBF Global to nurture new church starts in our state. Partnering with the CBF Church Starting Initiative is a three-step process:
Step 1: Online Discernment Cohort
For those who want to enter into a partnership with our initiative it begins with one of our 8-week online cohorts. This free experience offers candidates the opportunity to explore the various facets of church starting.
Step 2: Exploratory Conference
Invited candidates participate in a four-day experience of teaching, leadership development, core group and fundraising training, financial planning and coaching.
Step 3: Commissioning
When CBF commissions a church starter, CBF covenant to provide some of the following:
- Professional coaching for 3 years
- Site visits and leadership development
- Travel and lodging expenses to be commissioned at the CBF General Assembly
- Networking opportunities with CBF church starters, continued training and connections with CBF churches and programs such as Church Starter Retreat, Dawnings, and ChurchWorks
- Funding over three years
