Could I be a vocational planter and just skip dealing with established churches?


Yes, you could, but Kairos does not recommend it.  Most jobs would severly limit the necessary time and energy level for meeting and interacting with people.


Some experienced planters are capable of being vocational and starting a church at the same time, and yet crushing debt is often a part of that equation.  This is not something Kairos recommends.


There is a blessing and a discipline that comes from raising friends and funds.  Kairos values and believes in the local, established church.  God sends his missionaries out from existing churches.  The planter best goes out in the name of Jesus and with the blessing of his "Antioch" (Acts 13).
