on financing your church plant

ben arment is a creative, a teacher, a church planter, and author of the book “church in the making.”  too, arment occasionally says some pretty profound stuff on his blog.

There is a cost to bringing the Gospel to a community and only three options available…

  1. You pay for it.
  2. Someone else pays for it.
  3. The recipients pay for it.

If it’s number one, get used to the disregard, you’re bivocational. If it’s number 2, hey what do you know, you’re a missionary. If it’s number 3, congratulations, you’ve managed to secure the only socially validated kind of church in American culture.

ouch.
