As we continue our lessons on church planting I have learned today the so-called “linking activities”. This is a part of Church planting where you are trying to gather now your contacts together with other contacts to pave the way in starting a new church.

linking activityIn any church planting efforts, you will need at least five to ten Bible study groups before you can start a church. And sometimes the main problem is how are you going to gather them into one group to form a church. This is where linking activities comes in. This strategy will give you several important advantages:

  • Your contacts will have acquaintances with other contacts. This will pave the way in creating initial relationship with other possible members of the upcoming church.
  • You will be able to have an initial picture of your upcoming church.
  • Your contacts will have some excitement of meeting other people whom they can connect with while undergoing the same Bible study realizing that they are not alone. This can develop camaraderie and a sense of brotherhoond.
  • Your contacts will have a bit of picture of what it is to become a church.

Some Suggested Linking Activities

  • Celebrating your birthday in a joint Bible study with your contacts.
  • Inviting your contacts to for an anniversary.
  • Inviting your contacts to help in a very important church affair where you will need their help.

You can still probably name some more other linking activities. Just know the main goal of these activities is for your contacts to meet and get acquainted with other contacts and for them to see a glimpse of a church.
