Apostolic Women Church Birthers

If the tables were turned, what if women were financially supported to birth/plant new churches ... truly new postmodern communities of faith ... what would this look like? Where? How? How creatively different would feminine designed churching communities look like? What would women choose to spend the church plant monies on first, second, third? I dream of having a "Think Tank" that would answer these questions with multiple answers ... all being possibilities to find their actualization.

Wow there is a good question- I wonder if I might choose to build community and not a building- rooms can be hired, but relationships need nurture and time. Community projects and people centered thinking would be the way to go I think- but all through prayer of course

"Build a community" - where? how, Sally??
I'll try some ideas ---

How about: women pastoring a faith community built from work relationships - a worship service at noon?

OR

women pastoring a faith community built from having a small, cozy prayer/conversation/coffee room rented next to a busy orthodontics office -- parents could come in while waiting?

OR

women pastoring a faith commuity built from renting an apartment in an immigrant community - open for social service help/after school help, open for worship on Sunday.

OR

women pastoring a faith community built by going to 'safe houses' that a community has for women seeking safety from domestic violence - offering a creative service for Moms and their kids

OR

Holding emerging service at 'the projects' of most urban communities, at their community buildings ... build it around movies and conversation afterward

OR

Women partnering with teens, renting space next to a Walmart and holding Kids Church every hour from 9-12 on a Sat and/or Sun. -- drop off for parents?

Wow - do I ever like Sherri's ideas. I wonder what would fit for me, where God is taking me this next year?

Good thoughts, questions.
