We Help Our Church Planters and Their Partners:
Start Strong and Continue Multiplying
Starting a church that multiplies in the city can be challenging. We help you assess your calling and gifting to be an urban church planter, understand your city, build your team, establish coaching, and develop your plan & systems to holistically engage your city. You will be part of a network of experienced urban church planters and pastors who want to see you begin the journey strong and gain momentum to multiply.
Multiply Disciples and Leaders
Multiplying disciples and leaders is fundamental to everything an urban church planter and pastor does. We begin by helping church planters be disciples of Jesus who multiply. From there, we help you multiply disciples in your city through IMPRINT, an urban discipleship program. We also partner with church planters and churches to equip disciple-making leaders who serve in the market place and in roles of cultural influence.
Develop Partners and Financial Support
Starting a church in a city should be a team effort. We help you develop a team of partners that will be with you throughout the foundational years of your church plant. We also provide financial support and planning, so you can begin well and become financially self-supporting.
