Since 2010, Southern Baptists have planted more than 9,400 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:
- Seek first the kingdom
God is at work locally and globally.
- Deepen devotion
Without prayer and the Word, we are powerless.
- Stick together
We are a family united by a mission.
- Think multiplication
God’s global mission demands disciples and churches that multiply.
- Engage your city
The gospel changes lives, families and communities.
