Prepare for your planting adventure.

Anchor 1

If you feel called to plant a new church but do not have a church family, we would love to help you discover what it would look like to plant within The Great Lakes Region (GLR) of The Wesleyan Church (TWC). There are many advantages to planting within a broader network of churches. Still, it is vital to ensure you align with the vision, values, leadership commitments, and theological nuances.

Below, we have provided a link to some of the core content you would want to know if you were going to partner with The Great Lakes Region of The Wesleyan Church. We care more about people entering the Kingdom of God than we do just growing our family of churches. We want you to know that we are here to help you find the correct denomination or network to plant with and even resource you along the way.
