Type 2 Church Network

1. In type two church networks, branch churches are not independent and are continually monitored and governed by the headquarters.

2. The mother church finances the start of the church and supports it fully. All income flows into a central fund and ministers are paid from a central fund

3. All the needs of these churches are met by the network as a whole. There is more dependence on the central system than on individual strengths.

4. The scriptural truth that churches which gather in more income support churches that gather less is implemented fully. “As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack. (2Corinthians 8:15).

5. Pastors are trained by the mother organization. In this network, pastors continue to be trained and supported after their initial training.

6. The central governing body can transfer pastors.

7. An example of this system is the Church of Pentecost.
