CHURCH PLANTER RESIDENCY
Church Planter Residency 2022-23
Why Church Planter Residency?
The Cornerstone Collective is a communion of churches partnering together in the gospel to advance the mission of God across Merseyside. One of the main focus areas of our partnership is to plant churches that go on to plant churches.
To this end, the Church Planter Residency exists to advance the gospel across Merseyside and beyond by equipping those whom God has called to be part of planting and multiplying gospel-centered churches for the glory of God, the advance of His Church and the good of our region.
What is the Church Plant Residency set up to achieve?
The Cornerstone Collective Church Planter Residency will equip residents with the experience and resources necessary to plant churches across our region. Our hope and prayer is that we would spark a church planting movement that makes the Gospel of Jesus known across Merseyside. We desire to saturate every part of our region with churches made up of gospel-centered communities who live for, and speak of, our glorious saviour.
This church planter residency has been designed in light of the Acts 29 assessment process. We asked the question, “What are the key elements, characteristics and general areas of gifting that are often evident in a church planter?” Then we worked backwards, to create a residency that would train and help potential planters/church leaders to develop in these areas. In order to do this, we have integrated theological, missional and gospel-centered content, to run alongside ‘doing life’ with the covenant members of the Cornerstone Collective Churches.
What time and commitment is required of Church Plant Residents?
The residency will provide the atmosphere and platform for the residents to prepare to plant and lead. It will also provide time and space to prepare his heart, marriage (if married) and family life, for planting churches that plant churches.
The workload of the church plant resident is estimated to be a minimum of 20 hours a week. The majority of the workload will consist of personal study, cohort meetings, staff training, coaching and hands-on participation in the life of a Cornerstone Collective Church.
