I AM A PROSPECTIVE PLANTER WHEN WILL MY PROPOSAL INTERVIEW BE?
Once you register as a Prospective Planter we will schedule your interview and notify you as soon as we do. Once you have that information you will be able to make your flight arrangements. We have limited slots for proposals and may not be able to schedule all of the proposal interviews during the retreat. If yours is not scheduled during the retreat we will schedule a time to meet with you in November.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING FOR THE PROPOSAL INTERVIEW?
It is important that before you arrive the application has been completed and your budget submitted. If we do not have your application and budget we will not be able to schedule your proposal interview. You can bring with your whatever you want to in order to present your church plant to the board.
