The HCM is designed for planters who have been in their planting context for at least one year and are seeking to launch public worship of over 100 people within one year.
HCM church planters follow a monthly set of achievement benchmarks which are both process and outcome related. The development of contacts, committed people, leaders and small groups lead to readiness for preview services and finally a grand launch.
HCM church plant progress is measured monthly such that adjustments can be made to ministry and sustainability planning. At the close of the one year prelaunch phase the HCM plant is evaluated to discern it’s progress toward sustainability. Plants launching with under 100 adults in worship may require that the planter become bi-vocational.
