Network churches either started through the Lifehouse Network or want to experience the same level of relationship and commitment to the network as a new church plant. A network church may, but doesn’t have to be, governed by another network church that served as their “mother church” during their launch process. Network churches are committed to supporting the leadership of the Network and regularly contribute financially by investing 5% of their regular non-designated giving into the Network.
Partner churches must be self-governed and have agreed to join the Lifehouse Network after they started. They want to be part of this family of churches, supporting and resourcing the vision to start and strengthen thriving churches to multiply. Partner churches invest 2% of their non-designated giving into the Network and invest into church planting beyond the Network through their own church planting efforts.
