5 Goals in 5 Years
Growing | Giving | Going
Understanding the Plan:
Sovereign Hope Church is working intentionally to GROW bigger and GIVE more so that members can GO and plant more churches.
1. Grow to 150 People
We have a goal of growing our current membership to 150 people. Rather than building a new facility or looking for another property, we plan to send out people to plant a new church, allowing our church to remain small while growing.
2. Establish 5 elders and 5 deacons
When we established these goals, Sovereign Hope's leadership consisted of 3 elders and 2 deacons. Following the model laid out in the New Testament of raising up leadership, we have set a goal of establishing 2 additional elders (total of 5) and 3 additional deacons (total of 5) so that members of our leadership team can be sent out as part of our new church plant in one of the surrounding cities.
3. Start a local Ministry for those in need
To help prepare our church members to serve overseas, we have a goal of establishing a local ministry in Senoia that uniquely serves those in need in this area. Our hope is to build a ministry that will eventually serve as a training ground for ministry that our church engages in with our international church plant.
4. Plant a church locally
As our membership grows, we have a goal of establishing a new church plant somewhere in our surrounding area. Over this 5 year period, our goal is to strategize a plan, including a targeted new location, to plant a second church once we have the proper leadership and membership in place.
5. plant a church globally
We have a desire to impact not just our immediate area, but the ends of the earth with the gospel. Our goal is to identify a targeted area to as a potential location to send 4-6 of our members to help plant an international church. Sovereign Hope Church is budgeting money to help fund this endeavor.
