New Church Starts
First Twelve Training
First Twelve is a team effort of Path 1 New Church Starts at Discipleship Ministries designed as a training event to help gather and grow the first twelve committed, core people of a new church or new faith community. These first twelve people set the pattern for replicating leadership, and begin a cascade of invitation. Finding twelve who are invested and committed as leaders with you in helping start a new ministry is a key initial step in growing into something larger without your vision burning out or stalling out before a successful ministry launch.
First Twelve is developed and steered by Path 1 New Church Strategists Curtis Brown and Paul Nixon, but has been a true collaborative effort among all our Path 1 team, led by Executive Director, Rev. Dr. Bener Agtarap.
