Church Planting

God is doing a new thing through the Church of the Brethren. A movement of emerging mission points and church planting is gaining momentum. Passion is rising. Vision is expanding. Commitment is deepening. Networks are developing. People are acting.

In order to support this new thing, new church development ministries has made a commitment to cultivate the networks and infrastructure to support 250 new church starts by 2019.

Pray with us.
