Church Planting as a Family
Church planting isn’t just a ministry of church planters—it’s a ministry of the whole family.
Encourage, Inspire and Resource
Church planters have many teammates and partners, but his most important partner in ministry is his wife. Support, direction, guidance — whatever the planter needs, his wife and family likely need it, too. Send Network is here to encourage, inspire and resource church planting families to fulfill the Great Commission in their context. Send Network’s Spouse Care Development team engages women in order to create community, provide care, equip her with training, and support her with coaching to allow her to flourish in her unique and irreplaceable role in planting multiplying churches in North America.
