Is your Church ready to Multiply?

 Every pastor and leader has a part to play in the mission of church multiplication. Church Multiplication is a movement of God’s people mobilized to live on mission as disciple-makers, Spirit-anointed leaders, missionary-activated and sent out to expand God’s Kingdom to more people in more places. Multipliers intentionally engage in the multiplication of disciple-makers, leaders, pastors, and pioneers/church planters.

Church Planting Residency

A church planting residency is a 1-year immersion program designed to prepare a church planter to launch a life-giving and multiplying church effectively.

AA church planting residency experience will allow a future church planter to experience and discern the Holy Spirit's leading in their life.  As well as learn practical ministry skills and be exposed to the inner workings of a strong mission-driven church.

Throughout the residency experience, developing church planters will have the opportunity to hear from God, refine their church’s vision, build a strong team, raise the resources they need, and develop the strategies and systems necessary to pull the new church together when they are fully released into their mission field.

Host Site Coaching / Execution Pathway

Is your church desiring to develop influential future church planters? Launching an effective Church Planting Residency (CPR) program can be challenging, and sometimes we need a friend to guide us through the process and equip us for success. Through a unique partnership with organizations designed to empower the local churches to multiply, the GLR has a customizable coaching and execution pathway. This customizable pathway will equip you and your congregation to move from thinking about having a CPR experience to having future church planters in your church’s multiplication pipeline. Our customized coaching and execution pathway will equip you with the required infrastructure, curriculum, and systematic onboarding processes to set your church up as an approved CPR host site.

The GLR has a special grant to help offset the coaching fees associated with setting up a residency program in your church. Don't hesitate to contact the GLR for your next steps and detailed information about this coaching opportunity.

In addition to the coaching grant, the GLR offers a Church Planting Residency Host Site Start-up Grant. To help offset any financial risks that may hinder a church from moving forward.

Please connect with the GLR to receive more information and support for the Church Planting Residency Host Site Coaching/Execution Pathway.
