Gifts to this endowment provide resources for the development in the following ways:

  • New Church Starts - starting new churches is one of the key ways we reach new people of all ages and life circumstances and connect them with the body of Christ.  The current new church starts of the Dakotas Conference include:
  • Missional Church Consultation Initiative (MCCI) - resource churches and their pastors with an intensive consultation and clergy coaching model designed to intervine in local churchesd which have currently plattaued, are in decline of are on their way up but not sure what should come next; and have pastoral leadership potential to jumpstart a new life cycle of ministry fruitfulness.
  • Breakthrough Prayer - a six hour training for over 100 people from 13 different churches.  Participants are equipped with tools and resources to practice Breakthrough Prayer in their local churches.
