Welcome to the Church Planting Resource Center!
Church planting means hard work in the harvest field. Like planting an orchard, it means preparing the planter, having a compelling vision of what you want the orchard to look like, getting others to help so you’re not doing it all by yourself, discerning the type of soil, and then working step-by-step and stage-by-stage to prepare the soil, plant the seeds, tend the growth…in anticipation for the harvest.
Many church planters are desperate for resources for each stage of a church plant. Too often, training centers and boot camps provide material that is too far in the future. You need help NOW with the stage you’re at.
This online Church Planting Resource Center is designed to help you prepare for church planting and guide you through the first twelve months of a typical plant. There are some additional resources available as well for subsequent years and more.
