Passion for Planting is New Life’s church planting ministry. As a church planting church, and, through God’s blessing, we have helped start many additional growing churches. When we first began, our vision was to help start one new church every year. In 2002 we expanded our vision to be actively working with at least four church planters at any given time. Through God’s blessing, we’ve directly supported over 240 church plants and impacted countless other church plants by providing free resources, training and project management.
The below map shows the churches who are part of our “family tree”. We worked directly to help start the churches indicated with blue circles. Those shown with green circles are “granddaughter” plants. Click on a circle for more information about that plant.
We current provide the following services to church planters:
We provide Assessments to affirm the call of a potential church planter by evaluating their gifts, passions, strengths and weaknesses.
Twice a year we offer an intensive, onsite training for future church planters
Need some help as you go through the planting process? We have great Coaches with a lot of experience ready to help.
- Free Resources
Every church planter likes to download free resources or request free demographics reports.
- Church Planting Software
We developed a suite of online tools to help church planters plant healthier churches.
- Residency Training Program
We train future church planters by providing church planting residencies and training both at New Life and virtually via our distance learning option.
- Project Management
We not only help church planters do the right things at the right time, but serve as their subject matter expert, administrative and legal assistant, and executive minister in the months leading up to launch via our Project Management Services.
We also support Exponential which is all about accelerating the growth of new churches across the US and the World. We provide support and teaching for the annual conferences reaching over 7,500 church planters and church planting leaders.
And those are just the big things. We also have planter coaching groups, provide phone consultation, church planting grants, and more. One last side note: 12% of all our offerings go toward our church planting efforts. Every time you give to New Life you not only support our local ministry but also help start new churches. We think that’s pretty cool.
