Plant: Prep. Provide. Pace. Place
Our approach to church planting includes preparation but also incorporates many other aspects essential for the health of the planter and the newly birthed church. Fundamentally, we approach developing planters by preparing them, providing for them, serving them as venture catalysts, and helping them discern the strategic location God is calling them to plant. Each aspect is important and all work together in such a way, not only to train a planter, but also to walk with that planter through the multiplication of many churches.
We offer three types of residency programs. Each program utilizes a cohort approach as well as mentor/apprentice relationships with much of the instruction administered Socratically. They are all intentionally Gospel-centered and focused on mission and multiplication. The key difference between the programs, besides length and workload, is that the 2-year residency is designed for potential church planters, whereas the 1-year and 3-month residencies are designed more broadly for emerging Gospel Leaders.
