New Church Incubators (NCI) is a district program to help plant and support new churches in the Minnesota South District. This program makes use of a few different partners in mission—the District, the consortium, and the church planting congregation. Messiah is a part of the consortium. What is this? It means that we have agreed, along with other congregations in the district, to help the new church plant/planter with our prayers, financial support, encouragement, and any other way we can help out. The hope is that our support would help make the newly planted congregation to be self sustaining within four years.
