Our Planting Process

  • Initial Conversation  
  • Application for Church Planting Candidacy   Fillable Word form found HERE, or PDF version found HERE - completed and sent to the church planting commission for review.
  • Pre Assessment interview with Church Planting Commission This will be done through a conference call.
  • Formal Assessment through the Discover Church Planting Assessment Center  This is an interactive 3 day assessment. Watch the calendar for the next scheduled assessment.   
  • Coach Enlisted & Join Discover Church Planting A coach will work with an approved planter for up to 2 years, with contacts twice per month. Also the planter will be involved in quarterly planter’s clusters for support, training and relationship building with other planters.   
  • Defining Your Missiology Where will you plant and who are you called to reach?   
  • Planter Training - this is customized to each planter depending on experience, need and context.
  • Planting Proposal Drafted and Submitted This proposal will come out of the training, and will include benchmarks which will be the basis of the funding request. 
  • Field Launch This is when the planter moves into the target community to begin to build the relationships from which a congregation will emerge! 
  • Grand Opening The time of public recognition as a church. 
  • Preparation for Parenting a New Church We expect every church plant to become a mother church within 3-5 years.
