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 churches over the last 20 years, we’ve developed an immersive church planting training experience that prepares and equips you to plant healthy multiplying churches.

Our boot camp doesn’t teach just theory, but laser-focuses on the nuts and bolts of planting. You’ll develop key strategies needed to turn vision into reality. Coming out of boot camp, you will have tools and strategies necessary for planting a healthy, multiplying church.

During the boot camp process, you’ll get instruction from experienced church planting practitioners and engage in practical exercises. You’ll present drafts of several key strategies (more below) and get invaluable feedback. All of this will help you create contextualized strategies to support the health and growth of a new church.

New Hybrid Format

Our new format is a hybrid online/in-person approach in three parts:

1. Online Self-Paced Pre-Work

You’ll complete 6 online self-study lessons with accompanying exercises. You can begin the first lesson the same day you register!

The strategy documents you draft will be a critical piece of the in-person event, so have them done in advance of coming.

2. In-Person Event

Then you’ll come in-person Thursday evening through Saturday lunchtime with other planters where you’ll present the strategies and ideas you crafted through the self-study. You’ll get helpful feedback and hear creative ideas from the other planters as they present their strategies.

Several new church planting topics will be introduced as well.

3. Monthly Followup Zoom Cohorts

After the event, there will be several monthly online cohort sessions where everyone from the boot camp continues their learning and idea sharing together.

What You’ll Learn and Practice

You’ll leave ready to implement these key strategy documents:

  • Community Profile (demographics & context)
  • Disciple Making Strategy
  • Vision, mission & values
  • Fundraising Strategy
  • Leadership Multiplication Strategy
  • Launch Team Development Strategy
  • Digital Discipleship & Online Ministry
  • …and more!

Present and get feedback on your:
