L10:2 Prayer WalksOngoingPrayer walking is a critical component of planting new churches. In Joshua 1:3, God tells him, "I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses." There is something about praying on the land God is giving you that prepares the way for the Lord to come.

Discernment InterviewsOngoingIn the assessment process, we come alongside leaders to help them discern if the ministry of church planting is a good match for them. We want to be sure that the right planter is in the right place at the right time. We work with them to identify and define their God-given talents, acquired ministry skills, personal temperament and behavioral style, and show how these match up with the intangibles required to plant a church successfully. The results identify where the candidate stands in relationship to the needed 13 characteristics of effective church planters (as identified in the research of Dr. Charles Ridley) and recommends a plan for continuing development.
The process takes place in three phases:
It begins with an informal, on-line “pre-assessment” questionnaire which can be completed at the candidate’s own pace.
The candidate takes additional personality surveys, and engages in an in-depth, behavioral interview (with their spouses, if applicable) lasting several hours.
The final phase is a one and one-half day of group exercises with other candidates.
You can schedule interviews anytime. Email [email protected] to learn more.

Church Planter Boot CampJune 5, 2017 - June 8, 2017The Titus Institute offers intensive training in the key principles and practices utilized by successful church planters. These training opportunities are presented in a four-day “boot camp.”
Planters are encouraged to include key members of their launch teams in order to provide a common conceptual framework for the work they are undertaking. Instruction in the core concepts is interspersed with Team Exercises to allow planters and teams to ‘flesh out’ how the principles will be translated into their setting.
The church planting teams leave the training with:
A draft ‘Launch Plan’ for their new church in which they have defined the major elements of their ministry;
Key strategies fleshed out;
Accomplishable major milestones identified; and
An initial time line to follow.
Mark your calendar. Registration opens soon.
