Church Planting

We have begun a church planting movement within Princeton Alliance Church to reach those in need of the Gospel with its transforming power. We launched our first church plant, 217church, in February of 2010. Under the leadership of Pastor Josh Conn, that ministry is thriving as the church is in the process of purchasing 10 acres for future church building in Robbinsville. With a weekly service at 10:30 am at Sharon School in Robbinsville, they are anticipating growth and expansion of God's kingdom influence in Central Jersey.

Spiritual Health
For a PAC church plant to be considered spiritually healthy, there must be a sense of growth in our three key areas of mission: Knowing God, Developing Community and Bringing Hope to the world. Although this is relatively subjective, we believe we have created benchmarks to measure progress in each new church regardless of its culture. Those benchmarks include: Prayer as a foundation, percentage of attenders who are serving the church, salvations and baptisms, membership, and coaching/leadership development.

Operational Health
For a PAC church plant to be considered operationally healthy, the church must show evidence of consistent office practices and staffing stability. There must be a rhythm to: internal and external communication, newcomer follow-up and assimilation. The church must have established 501c3 status with a functioning leadership board.

Financial Health
For a PAC church plant to be considered financially healthy, the church must operate on a self-sustainable budget, have a system of financial accountability and reporting in place, and show evidence of ongoing giving to missions.

Sound evidence of spiritual, operational and financial health are necessary before PAC and the Christian and Missionary Alliance endorse a church plant as independent.
