Pastor

You are navigating a changing culture both inside and outside of your church. Whether through evangelism tools or compassion ministry, church planting or chaplaincy, we can help you and your people engage the lost and hurting are all around you.

Be a Church that Shares the Gospel

There are people in the shadow of your own steeple who don’t know Jesus. When the hope of the gospel weaves through every task you undertake, your church can become a powerful force for change in your community.

With resources and experience, we are here to serve you. Whether your church is deeply invested in mission, just getting started or somewhere in between, we can help you lead your church into a greater passion for gospel outreach.

Meet Needs Where You Are

Every day in your community there are people hurting. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the enormity of the needs. What can just one church—just one Christian—do? That’s where Send Relief comes in. We’re here to help you identify how you can respond to big issues in personal ways. Be inspired, equipped and trained to meet physical needs and share the gospel with people who are struggling to find hope. When a network of thousands of “just one” churches and “just one” Christians step out in faith and on mission, the transformation is expansive and eternal.

Join the Church Planting Movement

When you become part of the church planting movement, change is possible. Send Network church planters immerse themselves in a community, learning the rhythms and culture of that place and establishing relationships with neighbors. Instead of growing a church through membership transfer, a plant grows organically out of the evangelism efforts of the planter and church planting core team. We come alongside these planters—and the churches sending them—with practical training and strategic support.

Reach a Community, Reach the World

There are a variety of ways your church can serve strategic populations with great kingdom potential. The Send Network plants churches in these focus areas.
• Urban areas with high population density and diversity
• College campuses filled with students getting ready to disperse around the world
• Military communities where the culture is unique and the congregations are transient

Pray for Church Planters

Church planters need your prayer support as they serve in difficult and diverse settings. Choose a location, and lead your church to pray for church planters there.

Support Church Planters

You church can impact communities beyond your own by supporting church planters. From providing financial assistance, expertise and resources to sending teams which help with specific projects, your church’s investment is encouraging and critical.

Send Church Planters

Church planting is not a solo mission. A sending church does whatever it takes to help a plant become healthy, strong and successful.

Multiply My Church

The next generation of church planters is sitting in your congregation today. The Church Planting Pipeline can help you become a Multiplying church by identifying, challenging, and training missional leaders for their next steps in church planting ministry.

Church Planter Pathway

Though every church planting journey is unique, there are fundamental steps along the way. From clarifying the call to a church plant’s first service to coaching and encouragement in the first few years, you can help a potential planter or church plant team member navigate the process.
