Pastoral development & relationship to foursquare

The first 8 week Stage focuses on your development as a pastor in the Church Plant process. The materials and online learning will focus on the fundamentals of being a pastor and what that looks like for us to engage the call God has for our lives. This stage will also dive into our relationship with Foursquare and how our church plant fits into the bigger picture.

This stage will conclude with a 3 day face-to-face retreat. Details of this stage and retreat are given once Step 1 IDENTIFY is completed.


evangelism & discipleship | core group development

This 8 week stage focuses specifically on developing our Missiology and taking an inward study on our viewpoint of Discipleship. We believe that for churches to launch healthy, the leader must have a personally sound Missiology and have developed a real time discipleship engagement with the people & community in which they live. This stage 2 will also walk through the development of the Core Group that should or can begin to gather as a planter gets closer to launch.

This stage will conclude with a 3 day face-to-face retreat. (Details given once accepted into the TRAIN Step)

Soul care & healthy rhythms

This 8 week stage 3 focuses all on SOUL CARE. We believe that healthy Kingdom impact will always come from a healthy life. As simple as this sounds, it is the area that we believe is the most critical to longevity and long-term Kingdom impact. The materials, the conversations and even the 3 day retreat will guide each leader through a process of how to take care of and maintain a healthy soul amidst a busy season that is ahead.

This stage will conclude with a 3 day face-to-face retreat. (Details given once accepted into the TRAIN Step)


Organization & leading a foursquare church

This 8 week stage 4 will help the leader be equipped for the organizational & administrative tasks that lie ahead for each pastor as they begin their church. This stage will give insight and training on how to properly setup your church, how to function in your relationship with Foursquare and help organizational tools you will need to succeed. Things like how to start and lead a council, relationship with the MidSouth district and Foursquare, and even important subjects around insurance/ employees, etc…
