The Church Planting Residency of Perimeter Church is a two year period of focused training.
The training will focus especially on these six areas of Perimeter’s DNA:
50% of the CPIR's (Church Planter in Residence) time will be spent in "on the job training", typically assisting in our ministry to Young Adults. He will serve as a team member helping provide Pastoral leadership for single adults in their 20's or early 30's, the Newlyweds and/or the Young Marrieds. This will involve team meetings/relationships, pastoral care, evangelism, discipleship, preaching/teaching and ministry planning and coordination. He will receive feedback from the Pastor of Young Adults and/or a pastor serving one of these three groups under the direction of the Pastor of Young Adults.
The other 50% of his time will be spent learning "Perimeter Best Practices". The specifics of this will be established and tailored (to some degree) to match the needs of the planter. It will focus on both Perimeter's "way of doing ministry" (principles, not programs) as well as essential skills needed for successful church planting.
During this first year the planter and the Dir of CP'ing will more seriously explore possible areas in which the Resident might plant. This will include some significant time for the planter and his wife (if married) in the most probable target area(s). Our goal will be that, by the end of year one, all interested parties of the plant (planter and wife, if married; Perimeter's leadership; PCA or network churches nearby, the Network's Vision Team and associated Presbytery MNA committees) will all be "on board" and supportive of the effort.
Again the Planter's time will be split 50/50.
50% of his time will be spent helping a CP'er or young and developing church "in the field" in a way that is mutually beneficial to both the Church and the Resident. This may include more opportunities to preach, plan and lead worship, develop new ministries and/or lead ministry team leaders. This will give the Resident a better "feel" for what it will be like to plant.
The other 50% of his time will be spent in the following: settling on a place to plant (if necessary), doing demographics and spending time in the target area, developing a Ministry Plan, raising funds and preparing his first few months of preaching.
