Since 2010, Southern Baptists have planted more than 9,700 churches all across North America.
We believe God uses church planting to heal brokenness.
Brokenness is pervasive in every community across North America, and this brokenness is only healed through the hope of the gospel.
Church planting is our strategy to spread the gospel, respond to brokenness and to bring about restorative healing — spiritually, emotionally, economically and socially.
Church planting isn't just a ministry for individual planters. It's a ministry for the whole Church — corporately and globally. At Send Network, we value:
We're not just a network, we're a family of churches planting churches everywhere for everyone.
We believe every church is a Multiplying Church in the making, and we want to see a healthy, Multiplying Church in every community across North America.
We long to see communities across North America holistically restored by meeting spiritual, economic, emotional and social needs.
