• Legacy Church Planting


    Does your church need to consider and acknowledge that its current ministry is coming to an end? There is a process that will allow you to travel a new path to have lasting impact and reach your changing community. 

    Legacy Church Planting may be the next step for your church to consider. What seems to be a crisis can really be an opportunity to see God do something glorious. If you have come to the realization that it is time to consider an entirely new start for your church, we have a plan and want to talk with you about a process for planting a new church in your community.

    Legacy Church Plant Criteria

    To be considered for a Legacy Church Plant project, the following criteria will be applied:

    • A Missions Site Assessment will be conducted to determine the feasibility of a Legacy Church Plant project at your location.
    • The church will agree to a change in leadership and decision-making structure.
    • The church will agree to deed over properties and assets to a Sending Church, the Association, the State Convention or the North America Mission Board.

    Legacy Church Plant Models

    • Replant model – The At Risk church closes and a new church plant is launched.
    • Multi-campus model – The At Risk church closes and becomes a campus location for an existing church.
    • Merger model – The At Risk church joins with an existing church plant and the two churches become one.
