Send Network

Why Send Network?

The Send Network exists to push back lostness in North America. That purpose is accomplished through church planting in areas of greatest need. The Send Network recognizes that church planting is one of the most challenging, and yet rewarding, callings on a person’s life. With that reality in mind, the Send Network enhances the church planting experience through collaboration and unmatched support with assessments, training, coaching, resources and care.

The days of enlisting a planter and then saying, “God bless you,” as we wave good-bye are, thankfully, long behind us. Over the past several years, we have teamed up with partners across North America to develop the greatest support system for church planters this continent has ever seen.

The Send Network fosters a band of brothers who multiply themselves for the expansion of God’s kingdom. The question remains, will you play a part? 

The journey to becoming a Send Network church planter is crafted to help sharpen church planters at every step. The journey includes: Pre-Assessment, Assessment Retreat, Orientation, Training, Coaching and Care.

Why cities?

It’s been said if you reach the cities, you’ll reach the nations. With 83 percent of the population now living in metropolitan areas, the major population centers in North America are vital mission fields for kingdom growth and influence.

Different kinds of churches are needed to reach the current population. The gospel doesn't change, but our methods must be contextualized to the people we are reaching.
