Although begun with good intentions, not every church planting effort stays on course or continues to success. Church planting is uniquely birthed and has many areas that can become pitfalls as well as demands that challenge a church planter while trying to implement the vision; therefore, this thesis project provides a biblical structure to help church plants successfully implement the vision for the church. This thesis project provides a staffing model for church plants to give life to the vision and to enhance the survival rate of the church plants. The staffing model in this thesis project project consists of a visionary, implementer, manager and problem-solver, which are the key components to making vision a reality and overcoming the obstacles church planters face in implementing the vision. This thesis project will survey and report the findings of 150 church planters regarding their success and challenges in implementing the vision.
