Church Planting Out of the Box

Home Page

Church Planting is a unique calling.  When God calls a man to plant churches, he is calling him in many ways to live "out of the box".  If we live out of the box, we must think out of the box.

Please be aware that "ebay sunday" is in no way affiliated with ebay it's self.

Think Planting, Get Involved

Ebay Sunday is an opportunity for churches and Christians across the United States to bless a church planter by hosting an "ebay sunday".  A church, a group, a family or an individual who wants to become a part of the ministry of church planting by blessing a church planter, would host an ebay sunday and have congregants, family members, friends etc. collect items from home that they would like to donate to a church planter in order for the planter to use ebay, craigslist, amazon, or other means to sell the items and use the money to help support them and their families as they minister in this often sacrificial calling. 

Church planting is a walk of faith for planters and their families.  Most planters are struggling financially, many are unsure of how God is going to provide financially as they look forward even to the very next month.  We understand that many churches would like to do more to support church plants and their planters but their budgets just won't allow them to.  Ebay Sunday is a way that you can help to support these men and their families.  It is also a way to get everyone in your church involved in the ministry of church planting. 

Just as the needs of our church planters are on-going, so also is ebay sunday not meant to be a one time event.  You can support your church planter by hosting as many ebay sundays as your resources will allow.

It is as simple as 1, 2, 3...

1.  Find a church planter, who has agreed to ebay, that you would like to bless.

2.  Set up a Sunday or a series of Sundays to have individuals bring in their items.

3.  Deliver items to the planter (via the postal service, UPS, a rental truck, pick-up, or whatever other creative means you may be able to come up with).

Make an eternal investment by funding a church planter. 
Help keep them on the field doing what God has called them to do.

Why an Ebay Sunday?

We know you probably don't have to be told why an ebay Sunday is going to be a spiritually rewarding event for you and your church but here are a few reasons that we believe you should consider hosting an ebay Sunday event...

1.  Church planting is an essential tool for sharing the gospel with our lost world.  In fact, church planting is the most effective way to share the gospel and make new converts in our current culture.

2.  Most church planters are bi-vocational and struggle financially to make ends meet.  Those who plant as full time planters are often making great personal sacrifice, as well as their wives and children, in order to do so.

3.  Most jobs take away time and energy from the church planter that is essential to the consistent growth of the plant. 

4,  A planter, their spouse, friends, family, churches, etc. can help list items on ebay, craigslist, amazon etc. working at their own pace and as it fits into their own schedules.

5.  This is a way that every church and every believer can have active, hands-on involvement in the church planter's ministry and in providing for him.

6.  Often the little bit of funding a planter receives is short of meeting their true financial needs.

7.  Every planter needs encouragement.

8.  You can have an ebay sunday event as often as you choose. Twice a year on Spring Forward and Fall Back Sunday, or four times a year in the spring, summer, fall, and winter.  You can bless the same planter or bless a couple different planters through out the year.  It's completely up to you and those you choose to partner with you.

9.  You are investing in eternal treasures by becoming a partner in sharing the gospel with each lost soul reached by the ministry of your planter.  You will be storing up for yourselves treasures in heaven where moth and rust don't destroy and thieves do not break in and steal.

10.  You are pleasing the Lord by helping to care for those who minister the gospel.  How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news.

There are too many good reasons to get involved, to pass up this chance!  Come Plant With Us!
