Question: How can I become a Church Growth Partner?
Answer:
ICM works in many countries around the world. For this reason we have a Director of Partnership Review in charge of various areas around the world: Europe & Asia – Brad Orchard; Africa – Andy Scott; Latin America – Albert Allen and Special Projects – Burt Reed. Please contact the Director who is in charge of the area you are interested in (see “ICM Contacts” section in the middle of this website page), or by sending and e-mail to icm@icm.org or calling ICM at 757-827-6704, toll-free at 1-800-999-3892.

Your Director will walk you through the process. Please notice that ICM does not build single churches. ICM begins working in a country with a vision to build not just one, but hundreds of churches to blanket the country. Also ICM does not build churches directly with Pastors of congregations; rather, all the constructions must be done through established ICM Church Growth Partnerships.
Question: Is the ICM Church Growth Potential Partnership Questionnaire the same that the Partnership Application?
Answer:
No, it is not.  The Potential Partnership Questionnaire gives us a general idea of the administrative and organizational capacity of your organization and is the initial step to consider a Partnership between your organization and ICM.  As soon as the Questionnaire has been reviewed by the Director of Partnership Review, ICM will send you a notification as to whether or not this appears to be a good fit for a Partnership. If the ministry does appear to be a fit, a Partnership Application Form will be sent to gain more information.
Question: What do I do when I receive the Partnership Application Form from ICM?
Answer:
Please carefully read all the questions on the Partnership Application Form and complete all the blanks, being very exact in the detailed directions needed, such as the street number and address, City and Country (No. P.O. Box is accepted), Bank information, and please attach all the documents listed on the last page of the Partnership Application Form. They are:
1.- Audited Financial Statement or Most Recent Budget.
2.- References.
3.- Model Plan
4.- List of Board Directors.
5.- Map Noting Current Churches and Prioritizing Proposed Locations.
6.- Statement of Faith.
7.- Mini Bible College Review Form. (Please note that to the link needed for audio is given in the form.)

If you send your Partnership Application without all of these documents, or send the documents in different e-mails, please identify those documents with the Name of your Organization and Country.  Because we receive many applications, we might not be able to identify to which organization or to which part of the world your documents belong, and this may slow our approval process.

Question: When will I know if my Partnership Application was approved by ICM?
Answer:
Once the Partnership Application Form and all the documents listed on the last page of the Application have been received, and once everything is complete, a file is created and taken to the International Church Growth Committee with a recommendation.  If the Partnership is approved you will receive a welcome letter (via email) with a Username and Password, informing you to start with Targeted Mini Bible College (if we have it in your needed language), and with instructions on when to send your first Church Building Application(s) through the ICM Partner Website.  If the Partnership Application has been rejected, you will receive an email explaining the reasons why your Organization did not qualify.
