Church Planting Basics

October 31 @ 7:00 pm - November 3 @ 4:00 pm


Our King is in the business of transforming lives, communities and cultures around the world and in our own backyard. He has invited us to partner with Him in all that He is doing to advance His Kingdom. Church planting is one of the most crucial efforts of Kingdom advancement that we can invest our lives in.

Basics is an opportunity to explore, define and refine the practical nuts and bolts of planting a church. This will be a heavily packed few days (Thursday evening – Sunday afternoon) of learning, thinking and preparing for effective church planting. Basic immerses the church planter, and their team, into a learning lab environment. Foundational church planting topics are briefly addressed and an abundance of time is given for contextual development. Planter’s strategies are then reworked through the interaction of veteran church planters, coaches and other peers at the event. This event is not lecture driven, but interaction oriented. Basics is not geared towards a particular philosophy of church planting but geared towards the practical nuts and bolts of planting that can apply to any philosophy. The following is a brief outline of the topics that are covered.
