COMPLETE AND BLESS
To complete and bless is choosing to finish your congregation’s journey and use your assets to bless other ministries. Asset distribution can happen in multiple ways but a good rule of thumb is to invest 1/3 in church planting, 1/3 in church revitalization and 1/3 in ministries dear to the heart of the congregation. Other congregations choose to merge with a mission focused congregation while still others will use their assets to plant a new church either in their location or another.
