Figures include 2 full-time and 2 part-time expat staff salaries, materials, travel expenses, administrative and all program costs.  Once a program is launched, Meniscus, Inc. is committed to all project activities for a minimum of two years.

No outside funding is required for the future maintenance or staffing costs for indigenous church start-ups; expats serve only in trainer/mentor/facilitator roles, and all local church leadership is unpaid, assuring self-sustainability. Historically, new churches under the CPM model cost less than $50 (USD) per church to launch.
