Are you a potential Church planter looking to get started? Your first step is to connect with a Local Mission Leader in your area or regional leader for the assessment process. See more information about Starting New Churches.
Coaching is the process, guided by the Holy Spirit, of coming alongside ministry leaders, teams or groups to help them discern and realize God’s call for their life, leadership and ministry. Contact a representative from your regional team if you are interested in getting connected to a coach.
Go Local a journey to discover and join God in your neighborhood. It is a congregational process of prayer, listening, discerning, and experimenting. We are currently running our first virtual Go Local cohort with churches participating from around the Western US and Western Canada regions.
To find out more about the Go Local Initiative or express your interest in participating in a future cohort, please contact a representative from your regional team.
Parenting New Churches Together
