Welcome Future Church Planter!



Have you ever considered planting a church?

God might be calling you!

We need Spirit-directed church planters in our age today like never before. Ed Stetzer reports that, “Churches in the first decade of the twenty-first century are closing at a phenomenal rate. Eighty to 85 percent of American churches are on the downside of their life cycle. Win Arn reports thirty-five hundred to four thousand churches close each year.” (Stetzer, Planting Missional Churches, 13).

The most effective disciple making ministry you can be a part of within America is church planting—hands down! You might have the giftedness required to be a church planter! If you have ever wondered about church planting in America, we would love to talk with, pray with, and encourage you. The beginning point of your journey is the assessment phase.
