Troy McMahon & Matt Larson on Top 10 Do Over for Starting a New Location

  1. Invest more in the people God gives you.  Care for your flock.
  2. Bring un-churched people in on the launch team.
  3. Be clear and consistent in your language of apprenticeship.  Don’t assume they get it.
  4. Have the campus pastor live in the target community.  Live out the Missional lifestyle in the context before starting the church – modeling by the pastor helps others adopt early.
  5. Know where to slow down to reproduce effectively.
  6. Manage expectations, particularly in launching.  Many go into launch with an assumed picture of success.
  7. Take care of your best leaders.  Spend time with whoever is most responsible for carrying out the vision.
  8. Get key people from the launch team to each have three Missional stories.
  9. Develop a culture of prayer.
  10. Free up the campus pastor from current responsibilities no less than three months before launch.
