Pray, Equip, Share Jesus: 2015 Canadian Church Planting Survey

2016, 22 pp
New Canadian church works that pray, equip leaders (volunteer and staff), and share Jesus have more commitments to Christ, are more likely to be a majority unchurched congregation and be financially self-sufficient. These findings are part of a new study by LifeWay Research, sponsored by the Canadian C2C church planting network and Church Planting Canada. The study is based on a survey of 141 church starting leaders between July and November 2015.

Church plants surveyed that regularly conduct prayer walks are more likely to be majority unchurched. Having prayer meetings is associated with a higher likelihood of financial self-sufficiency.

Church planters surveyed participating in equipping activities like peer to peer networks are seeing a higher number of new commitments to Christ. Church plants conducting evangelism training for lay leaders are more likely to be part of a majority unchurched congregation. Similarly, church plants surveyed conducting a member class or using a church covenant are more likely to be self-sufficient. And, church plant staff members mentoring future church planters are experiencing higher levels of financial self-sufficiency.

Church plants who are sharing Jesus in many different ways, including meeting in public spaces like schools, are seeing a higher number of commitments to Christ. Church plants surveyed who conduct outreach Bible studies and regularly make evangelistic visits are more likely to be a majority unchurched congregation. Church plants surveyed that are heavily involved in their local communities are more likely to be financially self-sufficient.
