    What is Send North America

    Send North America is the North American Mission Board’s strategy for moving churches and individuals into all regions of North America to lead people to faith in Jesus Christ and start new churches. This evangelistic church planting strategy is designed to:

    • Discover churches, church planters and other missionaries to penetrate lostness and connect un-churched people with a local congregation.
    • Develop church planters and sending churches for evangelistic church planting.
    • Deploy churches within defined regions, people groups and large population centers (cities).
    How Can Send North America Help My Church Start Churches?

    Every church can be a part of planting new churches. The level to which your church becomes involved is up to you. There are two levels of involvement, and all are extremely important.


    Supporting Church.
    A Supporting Church partners with a church plant through praying, participating and/or providing. Often there will be multiple supporting churches partnering with a particular plant, helping to meet different needs.


    Sending Church.
    A Sending Church is responsible for a new church plant until the plant is self-sustaining, self-governing and self-propagating.



    A Praying church commits to praying specifically for a planter, city and region utilizing prayer resources supplied to them by NAMB and regional staff. There are numerous ways your church can do this. We will be glad to share ideas.
    A Participating church participates in church planting by involving its members personally in ministry with the church planter. For example, your church may want to send mission teams to assist church plants or seek to mobilize individuals within your church to be sent as short- or long-term missionaries as a part of the planting team.
    As a church develops a closer relationship with a church planter, some find that there are other tangible needs for which they can provide. If your church is able to participate in this way you could have the opportunity to provide for some of the specific needs many church plants have during their critical first years.

    What is the Send North America Mobilization Process

    If you are not already planting or supporting a church plant, we invite you and your church to discover how you can be involved as a Supporting, Sending or Multiplying Church.


    Register by clicking the "GET STARTED" button below. You also may contact NAMB at (888) 749-7479 or mobilizeme@namb.net 


    After registering, you will receive an email confirming your registration and welcoming you to the Send North America process. The email will also note that a NAMB mobilizer will be contacting you soon.


    The NAMB mobilizer will help you mobilize your congregation in a timely manner to the city or region you have chosen.


    Once your church is ready, the NAMB mobilizer will connect you to someone directly in the city who will help you narrow your focus to a particular community that needs a new church or to an existing church planter to begin your partnership.


    Once the above focus is determined, your congregation will now be partnering with your preferred community or church planter.


    To assist you with informing your church about the partnership with your church planter and new church plant, NAMB will provide you with promotional items at no expense. Someone from our Church Planter Relations department will contact you to thank you for participating and to direct you to our online list of promotional resources. Just visit the link you receive and select from the resources that best fit the needs and interests of your church. Once selected, your order will be placed and shipped within weeks.
