Attempting Great Things

Chile Church Planting

“Attempt Great Things For God; Expect Great Things From God” Willam Carrey

Santiago, the capital city of Chile is also the largest city with a population of almost seven million people. The people and cultures that make up the city are as vast and different as the geography of the country.

Our desire is to start a church for every 50,000 people in the city. In order to accomplish this task we need to start 140 churches. It seems like an impossible goal, but with God all things are possible. Willam Carrey said, “attempt great things for God; expect great things from God”.

One of the great things we are attempting is Chile Church Planting. Chile Church Planting is a way that will help us, not only reach our goal of 140 churches in Santiago, but will allow us to reach all of Chile.

We want to place men in the churches we start; as well as train them how to start churches, but many times the lack of financial backing stalls this effort. We need your help attempting this great task.

Just imagine if 100 people would give only $10 month to Chile Church Planting we would have the funds we need to finance up to three church plants at a time.

Would you take a moment to look over the information on www.ChileChurchPlanting.com, prayerfully consider giving either a one time or recurring gift, and expect with us; great things from God.

OUR PLAN

The key to reaching a country for Christ is to train national church planters to reach their own people.  This is exactly what Jesus and his disciples did!  Following the biblical model, faithful Chilean men will reproduce more future church planters.  As the multiplication process starts, a country can literally be revolutionized by the gospel.

Since 2005, this has been the chief objective of Chile Church Planting.  What started with one church in Santiago, has now multiplied into eight growing local congregations.

Just imagine what God could do in the near future as more young pastors are trained!   If each of these 8 churches could start another church every 5 years, then we would have 16 churches in 5 more years.  After 10 years, 32 churches would be spreading the gospel around Chile.  Multiplication is definitely the key!  This is exactly what Paul had in mind when he wrote 2 Timothy 2:2, “And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also”.

If we continue with the above example of planting a new church every 5 years, within the next 30 years, over 500 churches could be planted for the glory of God!

 

OUR PROCESS

How do we prepare these church planters?  In 2009, we started the Chile Baptist College to prepare church planters.  Each student attends 8 semesters of classes to earn their Bachelor in Biblical Studies and Church Planting degree.

How do these young men get experience in the ministry?  Every student in the Chile Baptist College is actively working in church planting while attending the Bible college.  Most of them accepted Christ in a church plant and are now assisting their pastors to launch more churches.  Many are preaching and leading ministries each week.  This approach to training is definitely hands-on.

When do the young preachers start their first church?  Most students are actively planting a church by their junior or senior year in the Bible college!

How long do they need financial support?  Our goal is to assist these young men financially for 36 months.  This temporary support will allow each church planter to work full time in the ministry while growing a local congregation.  During this time, his support from Chile Church Planting will decrease as the offerings from the new local church increase.  By the end of the 36 month period, he will be fully supported by the Chilean church.

OUR PRODUCT

The church planter can work full-time in the ministry from day one.
The limited and temporary nature of his support will encourage him to aggressively work in the ministry.
The new local congregation will learn from the beginning to financially support their pastor.
The new churches can be fully self-supported within 3 years.
As the financial support for one pastor is gradually reduced, funds become available for another church planter.

GET INVOLVED

This ministry can only be possible with committed financial partners.  Our monthly budget for 2014-2015  is $950 a month.  100% of these funds are given to help Chilean church planters.

  • Will you pray about giving monthly to help us reach our budget?
  • Will you pray about giving a one-time offering to help us invest in church planting?

All gifts are tax deductible.
