Are you nursing an entrepreneurial idea for ministry,
but don’t know how to get it started (much less fund it)?
Is your church ready to move a social enterprise idea down the field that serves a need in your community while funding other aspects of ministry?
Could you use the wisdom of others to test-drive an idea for missional innovation?
Are you curious about what’s involved in starting a sustainable nonprofit or for-profit ministry and have a real-life example to learn on?
The BWC MINISTRY HATCHERY gives space, time, and the right conditions to move your idea from concept to launch. This collaborative incubator experience is where creative people get coaching and colleagues around mission and social enterprise. We will run you through a 49-hour intensive “hatch” process designed to turn ideas into actionable, sustainable ministries.
Participants will create prototypes of basic framing documents, develop an initial pitch deck, and practice communicating their ideas to others. This will not only help you create a better plan but position you to more successfully write grants and ask donors for money. Persons who are seeking BWC Mission Innovation Grants and who complete this process will be prioritized.
