We know church planting can be a lonely experience, to have a supporting church near a 2020 plant can make all the difference!
We welcome churches to partner with 2020 by adopting a church plant. That might simply mean committing to pray, but in many cases Birmingham-based partner churches may be able to offer support in other ways. For example a partner church may offer support by:
Mentoring the planter and core-team in situ
Inviting a few members to consider joining the core group of the new church (perhaps some who live nearer the new plant than the partner church or some with a vision for the community the plant is seeking to reach).
Providing local knowledge of the area and helping a new church build relationships in the community
Providing administrative assistance (office space, photocopying facilities, storage)
Offering training for specific ministries to the plant
Supplying a start-up team to help kick-start new ministries (eg. Kids and youth work)
