Why Plant Churches?
We believe that God’s Plan A for reaching our neighbors and the nations is the local church. Local churches are outposts for gospel proclamation and beacons of truth and grace in a world set against our King and his Kingdom. In light of that reality, we long to see more and more healthy local churches planted in our community, nation, and world. We are committed to using our resources, both financial and human, to see that come to fruition. Below are our current church plant partnerships.
