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.
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.
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.
