We’re committed to starting missionally minded churches until every people group and community has heard the gospel.

We start churches that start churches to see lives changed with Christ’s love and truth. We partner with an organization called Converge which provides a clear pathway for someone to plant a new church, campus or to multiply their church. They've created proven strategies, systems and training all designed to improve their success so that more people will have the opportunity to accept Jesus.

SUPPORT A CHURCH PLANT

Maybe you're neither called to become a church planter nor serve on a church plant, but you would like to financially contribute to a church plant. Great! Finances are crucially important to a church, especially in its very beginnings. Through our partnership with Converge, we can point you to church plants that would greatly appreciate your financial gift.

SERVE ON A CHURCH PLANT

Maybe you're not called to become a church planter but you would like to serve on a church plant in some way. Maybe you'd like to serve as a greeter, an usher, a security volunteer, a kids volunteer, a musician or in some other capacity - that's great too! Church planting is truly a team effort and everyone's contribution matters. Through our partnership with Converge, there are always opportunities to serve on a church plant. 

BECOME A CHURCH PLANTER

With Converge, you’ll get personalized coaching, practical training, relevant resources and tested strategies that work in the community in which you plant. You'll be able to implement proven systems that will help increase the long-term success of your church plant. More importantly, you'll be part of a family with other experienced church planters and mentors to support you, enthusiastic partners who want to see you succeed. After some conversations together, you'll have the opportunity to attend Converge's highly-trusted Church Planting Assessment Center. During the assessment, trained assessors will help you discern your calling, fit in ministry and capacity to be the lead pastor on a planting team. Next, we’ll outline partnership details, discuss your salary and explain what church planting grants you will receive.

We’ll teach you how to raise funds, recruit your launch team and fill out the legal forms to establish your church as a 501c3 non-profit. We can even help with the creative aspects of your church plant such as naming, branding, logo development and getting your website up and running. And that's just the beginning. When you plant a church with Converge, you become part of a movement of like-minded, Bible-believing churches focused on the mission of Jesus. We are spiritually dynamic, relationally devoted, missionally driven and culturally diverse.
