Should You Plant a Church?


Something or someone has put a sliver in your mind, a burr in your saddle, or a fire in your heart. You wonder if you’re called to pioneer something new in God’s kingdom rather than stick with what’s established. You sense the culture is shifting and wonder whether God’s Spirit is saying “Yes. You. Now.” You know people who are far from God and who might never be reached apart from a fresh expression of the gospel. So you’re taking the somewhat unnerving step of admitting that God may be calling you to the daunting task of starting a new community of faith. Congratulations for taking this first step of discerning your call to church planting! Through this Should You Plant a Church course, we’ll help you define your holy discontent, reflect on your own wiring in light of church planting, and determine next steps to plant a church.

We estimate that this will take you 11.5 hours to complete (but not all in one sitting!).
