Will StartNew work in an existing church?
Yes, especially if you are looking to launch a new ministry or re-plant an existing one. Existing congregations have used our StartNew process to re-launch a recovery ministry, reposition a declining congregation to reach the young families in its community, and start a basketball league for elementary age children, just to name a few.
Can teams attend or is StartNew only for individuals?
We strongly encourage teams to attend StartNew. Our process develops entrepreneurial leaders in a sacramental framework, focusing especially on team building. The stronger the team, the stronger and faster the startup.
How does the coaching component work for a team?
After the 3Day weekend, your team leader will receive a list of 3 possible coaches. After interviewing the candidates, your team will choose the coach they think best suits them. From then on, the coach will coach the team each month in a team meeting, either by phone or video conference. A team coach makes for great communication, unity and movement within the team and thus within the startup.

Who is StartNew for?
StartNew is for individuals and congregations in any setting (urban/suburban/rural) and of any ethnicity who want to reach their community by starting something new. These startups can be church plants of all sizes and shapes, non-profits (like a mobile medical clinic being launched in Detroit), or Kingdom businesses (for-profit businesses whose resources benefit the local church). Generally speaking, if there is a significant cost incurred (staff, congregational focus, etc.) then our process is a perfect way to ensure the investment is a good one.
Are there additional costs for a team to attend StartNew?
Every team member who participates in our StartNew process must be assessed. Each assessment costs $500. We assess everyone on the team so to see the individual strengths and how best to build the entrepreneurial team. Once a team is accepted into the process, however, there is only one cost. A team of 1 or a team of 10 all pay the same monthly cost.
Can I take part in the assessment or coaching only or do I have to participate in the entire two-year incubator?
. Our proprietary assessment process is available by itself and is perfect for congregations and organizations looking to hire entrepreneurial leaders. Similarly, you can get one of our coaches without going through the StartNew process. Click here for info. However, to participate in our 3Day and 1Day training events, both the assessment and coaching are mandatory.
Does StartNew work with church plants?
Definitely. As the chasm between the Church and the culture continues to widen, a variety of start-ups is needed whose goal is introducing Jesus to people. Our process helps entrepreneurial leaders from all walks of life who want to start a variety of non-profit and for-profits, in urban, suburban and rural settings.
Does StartNew work with startups other than church plants?
By all means. As the chasm between the Church and the culture continues to widen, a variety of startups is needed whose goal is introducing Jesus to people. Our process helps entrepreneurial leaders from all walks of life who want to start a variety of non-profit and for-profits, in urban, suburban and rural settings.
