We are building a church planting support system to include assessment, training, coaching, ongoing support and seed money for qualified church planters with the goal of planting nine new MC USA congregations in 2019. Each dollar creates the support church planters need to pursue their calling within MC USA.
The Sent gathering is an important time for peace church planters from diverse communities to gather for worship, inspiration, resourcing, networking and empowerment. Scholarships to attend Sent 2019 are offered to planters on a case by case need for those who aren’t receiving compensation for working with a church. Unlike larger church plant networks who fund church planters, many Anabaptist church planters are bi-vocational and preparing for Sunday in addition to other jobs. Taking time off work to travel and participate in Sent may require taking a day without pay, in addition to expenses of travel and lodging.
$65 will pay for one person’s registration
Any amount helps contribute to the cost of a round-trip airline ticket.
$320 will pay for two nights of lodging, where conversation and networking happen in the “off-hours.”
