Most of the new churches in Poland are planted through the “mother/daughter” concept. An existing congregation provides the leadership to develop a mission station that grows into an independent congregation. In the “pioneer” model, a family or small group moves into a city to establish a nucleus of believers that eventually becomes an established congregation. The “ELI” (Emerging Leaders Internship) training initiative is a “multi-church” team approach for planting churches in the city of Warsaw.
