Many congregations who need to transform are using much less of their building space than they once used. One strategy for transforming a congregation is to nest other congregations in your facilities—develop location partners. Here are several advantages and benefits. First, it is good stewardship of the facilities resource God has given congregations.
Second, it tests congregations’ true openness to engage in ministry with other people. Third, it allows the congregations to learn from one another. Fourth, it creates an opportunity for prayer and service support with one another. Fifth, it may address some financial needs of the hosting congregation.
