Passion for Planting exists to equip church planting leaders to plant healthy reproducing churches.
We are a non-profit church planting support ministry started by a group of church planters from New Life Christian Church. New Life was started as a church planting church, and, through God’s blessing, we have helped start many more reproducing churches. In 2002, our vision was to help start one new church every year and to be actively working with at least four church planters at any given time. And now, through God’s blessing, we’ve helped start over 300 churches and we’ve indirectly supported numerous other church plants worldwide. Passion for Planting is an outgrowth of our local church experience and our passion to help start healthy, reproducing churches.
Our Purpose and Beliefs
Our strategy is to:
- Help planters discover their aptitude, calling, and readiness for church planting (Assessment).
- Train church planters on best practices and the practical nuts & bolts of church planting (Distance Residency Cohort and Boot Camp).
- Work alongside planters to help develop and implement plans and strategies during their startup (Project Management).
- Come alongside the planter to help them “land the plane” well for Launch Day and beyond (Coaching).
- Deliver practical tools to help planters accomplish their mission (PlanterPlan church planting checklist app and free church planting strategy templates).
- God is bigger, better, and closer than we can imagine
- God loves people more than we can fathom
- Jesus is God in the flesh
- The Bible is God’s perfect guidebook for living
- Grace is the only way to have a relationship with God
- Baptism is our public declaration that we live for Him
- God created everyone for a purpose, to make disciple makers
- The church is to serve people just like Jesus served people
