Church Planting

Planting new congregations is our primary purpose. We use several methods:
  • Progressive Church Plants: An evangelism method that allows and encourages the leader of the new work to grow and develop along with the work itself. In this case, an established congregation begins meeting people in a new city/area intending to begin personal Bible studies. Once a solid group is meeting for studies, leaders begin hosting periodic worship services in that area. The new outreach becomes a Preaching Point. When the pastor of the “mothering” congregation is convinced there is momentum to create a New Start, and the interest & demand are sufficient, the work progresses to weekly worship services, and Daughter Work status. The pastor of the supporting congregation then works with the Daughter Work leader to establish metrics for becoming a New Start (a self-governing work).
  • New Starts: self-governing congregations initiated by a ministry family or team, less than 5 years in existence.
  • Young Churches: self-governing congregations that have existed more than 5 years, but less than 10.
  • Metro Church Plants: Church-planting families reach into a recognized metropolitan area with the financial & spiritual support of many churches across North America.
