Church Planter Boot Camp

Church Planter Boot Camp

Are you called to plant a church? Do you have a vision for starting new faith communities? Great! Calling and vision are vital in church planting ministry. However, you’ll need more than calling and vision to start a healthy church. You’ll need well-thought out strategies, a comprehensive plan to implement those strategies, and God’s provision to see your vision become reality. That’s where Passion for Planting’s boot camp steps in. Through our experience in helping start over 270 churches, we’ve developed an intensive boot camp that prepares and equips leaders to plant healthy multiplying churches.

Wondering whether this type of training will benefit you even with all your education and ministry experience? Read Ed Stetzer’s The Value of Church Planter Assessment and Training.

Our five-day boot camp doesn’t teach theory, but laser-focuses on the nuts and bolts of planting by developing key strategies needed to turn vision into reality. Coming out of boot camp, participants are furnished with the tools, strategies and a comprehensive plan necessary for planting a multiplying church.

During boot camp, participants receive instruction from experienced church planting practitioners and engage in practical exercises to help produce contextualized strategies to support the health and growth of a new church.

Key strategy documents produced during our boot camp include:

  • Prayer Team Strategy
  • Launch Team Strategy
  • Funding Strategy
  • Staffing Strategy
  • Networking Strategy
  • Marketing Strategy
  • Outreach Strategy
  • Ministry Team Strategy
  • Assimilation Strategy
  • Discipleship Strategy

Other teachings sessions include:

All of the week’s training culminates with the development of a detailed Launch Plan designed to keep church planters focused on the right things at the right time.  Check out this short video from Boot Camp graduate Josh Wagner!
