Brought to you by Passion for Planting

You've been called to plant a church – now what? This Introduction to New Church Development course provides valuable “next steps” for the incredible journey you’re about to embark on. You’ll receive practical nuts and bolts knowledge and learn “how to” methods for church planting from the ground up. Topics include: calling, vision, planning, oversight, fundraising, volunteer management, and operations for the new church (e.g. marketing, outreach, facilities, equipment, legal requirements, worship/teaching).

This course is “free”; however, there are several required reading books that will greatly enhance your learning experience. These books (available on kindle) will be valuable resources in your church planting journey. Links for these books (and other resources) are provided within each of the course units.
