Church Planting Intensive

posted on September 01

Is God calling you to plant something new to reach people who aren't currently following Christ? Are you curious how to go about starting a new church?

Church Planting Intensive is a three-day training event for those discerning or preparing to start something new – whether it’s a new ministry or new multi-site. We’ll discuss crafting a vision and purpose, building a launch team, cultivating generosity, and what to do after launching. Join us as we get a practical, how-to-plant crash course from two United Methodist planters who lead large multi-site churches in the Missouri.

Registration closes on Oct. 31.
