Many members of the church I pastor send their children to a couple of local Christian schools. We've had the discussion about having a Christian school in our own church, and at the present time it isn't feasible. Also, there are two that are fairly close, one K-8 affiliated with an Assembly of God church and one PK-12 affiliated with a Southern Baptist church. We've decided to commit budget funds under the category of "Discipleship ministry" to the schools where members of our church attend, rather than try to start a third school and compete with the others for students. We will probably start doing this in the fall. We won't ask for a board seat, or for any favors (tuition discounts for members, etc) because we strongly believe that the next generation of Christian leaders must come from good Christian schools. A couple of questions: 1. If you belong to a church that has its own Christian school, how would you approach receiving money from another church for support of your school. 2. If you don't have a Christian school at your church, do you help other church schools?
