Step 3- Support Planters
AFFIRM PLANTERS FOR FUNDING
242 Network leadership will monitor each planter’s progress during the training stage and when they believe the planter is ready to receive funding will recommend to the Mississippi Baptist Convention Board whether or not they should receive funding from the Margret Lackey State Missions fund. The amount and timing of the funding will also be recommended along with any conditions that must be meet for funding to be received and/or continued. The Mississippi Baptist Convention Board leadership will have the final decision on funding approval.
COACHING CONTINUES FOR 1 YEAR
The planter will continue to be coached for at least a year after they receive funding for their church.
HUB LEADERS CONTINUE INVESTING
Hub leaders will schedule regular meetings for planters and pastors of established churches to meet for fellowship and encouragement.
ANNUAL ASSESSMENT OF EACH PLANT
Planters who receive funding will have their progress with their Church Master Plan reviewed each year by 242 Network leaders to determine if their funding should continue. Recommendations along with the findings of the people doing the review will be provided to the Mississippi Baptist Convention Board for their final decision.
