Welcome Prospective Planters
You can probably recite the Great Commission by heart (Matthew 28:16-30). You may also know as churches get older, they are less effective in making new disciples. Brand new churches receive (on average) one new member for every three existing members. After four years, it’s one for every 37 existing members. After 10 years, it’s one new member for each 83 existing members.
Planting new faith communities is perhaps the most exciting, most fruitful, and yet challenging opportunity in all of Christian ministry. Do you have the fire to plant? Do you have the gifts required to plant? Where to start?
