Project Type: Church Planting


One of the main thrusts of NLI’s ministry over the past 21 years has been  to help establish many new dynamic life-giving churches throughout Europe.  Our model of church planting has been based on empowering and resourcing national workers in their passion to see communities reached through the planting of new churches.

A key plank in this strategy has been to partner new church plants in Europe with churches in  Western nations.   Partner churches  offer help to the new church plant in the form of financial support, training and the sending of mission teams to work along side the national church planter in front-line evangelism and community  impact programs.

In any given nation or region in Europe, often several new churches are joined together into a Church Planting project, which allows for a greater impact in that region and a pooling of resources (eg. training, mission teams, etc.)  for greater effectiveness.   This model of supporting national workers has proven to be a very effective strategy.   It has been a most gratifying experience to see great depth of relationship develop between the church planter and the partner church with benefits to each party.

Going forward, the NLI Network will utilize some aspects of this successful model, but will also consider targeting strategic communities through more focused support of single ‘high-impact’ church plants.  We will also experiment with our national partners in the development of new expressions of ‘Christian Communities,’ particularly in relation to Community Transformation initiatives.
