Working together to expand the reach of gospel transformation by discovering, developing, and deploying disciplemakers who plant multiplying churches.
We Plant Churches that Plant Churches
The natural and necessary result of evangelism and disciplemaking is for new churches to be birthed. The Alliance has a vision for spirit-empowered multiplication—that churches would plant churches that plant churches until the gospel has lasting influence over an entire community, city, and society as a whole. What would happen if more churches planted churches? A multiplication movement would start!
We envision a Christ-centered movement of local churches that plant multiplying churches until the Great Commission is complete. Our commitment is to champion this vision and empower local churches to multiply disciplemakers, build capacity, and be mobilized to plant healthy, reproducing churches in all local and global contexts.
Healthy churches plant healthy churches. Do you want to become a church that raises up leaders to plant more churches? Consider becoming an Alliance Greenhouse Church environment, equipped to:
DISCOVER emerging leaders in your church to whom God has given unique strengths and gifts.
DEVELOP their capacity for deeper life, evangelism, ministry, and leadership.
DEPLOY developed people and their gifts to the Church and the lost through church planting and the greater mission field.
Greenhouse churches serve the integral roles of primary leadership development environment and sending community. In preparation for deployment, the church planter in residence works with the district for licensing, assessment, coaching, training, and support.
Ask your district to find out more about Greenhouse environments and church planting residencies. You can find your district here.
An African proverb says, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” This could not be truer for a church planter. Consider becoming accredited as a church planter with the Alliance collective of districts and regions, committed to:
ASSESSMENT—You have been created by God for a purpose. A church planter assessment helps you answer:
- Could you plant? Is this your divine wiring?
- Should you plant? Are you in the right space relationally, spiritually, and emotionally?
- If so, what is the best coaching pathway forward?
COACHING—Reminding you that you are not alone, coaching will be based on who you are, where you are planting, and what that plant looks like.
TRAINING—The church planter and core team will be provided with practical skills and strategic thinking which prepares them for the planting logics and future ongoing multiplication.
SUPPORT— District, regional, and national grants are made available by request, and each unique story and new expression of the church is surrounded with prayer and celebrated by the greater Christ-centered Acts 1:8 Alliance family.
