Finding a Sponsor
Where to look
Although individuals can register and pay their own way to assessment, it is best to seek a sponsorship by a district, parent church, or other church planting agency. The effort exerted in finding a sponsor is a good first test of whether or not you can share a dream others want to help fulfill. It also opens the door to an on-going relationship that can result in significant spiritual and material support for any church plant you may actually lead in the future.
To find a sponsor, talk to your current ministry supervisor, senior pastor (if you are a staff person), or a trusted church leader about your interest in attending the LCMS Church Planter Assessment Center. It is best to choose someone with whom you can envision a long-term partnership as a potential church planter.
