Does anyone have any experience with starting a new church?  I have heard of IFB churches training and ordaining pastors, within the local church, and then sending them out to start new churches.  Has anyone here ever been a part of something like this?  How would one go about finding such a pastor that would be willing to relocate and undertake such a thing?  I would love to start a new church in my area, but I am not qualified to pastor a church.

I have a little. What area?

The best way would be to call up a the closest good churches you can find and talk with their pastors. You can share your burden and see if they know of anyone who is looking for a place to start a church and also what you and any others in your area can do to support a new work.

While you may not be qualified to pastor you can certainly do whatever you can to prepare the way for a pastor to come, as you wait for a church to send a person out. Like finding a meeting place, evangelizing, soul winning, gathering and meeting with others that would like a new church, and etc. You would also have to be willing to let the sending church and pastor have the authority to oversee, take over and organize your ministry and any prepared work, as they see fit.
