Church Planting Initiative

Isaiah 43:19: See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

  • Are you a church looking to plant a new church? We can help you find a church planter!

  • Email if you want to explore these options.
