As we have noted, all the people you are developing in your church will not plant a church (that would actually be a bad thing for your church). But when God calls, we believe that planting a church together is the best way to plan. When someone is ready (or thinks they are ready) to plant a church we put them through our church plater assessment process. If they are coming out of a Collaborative Church, that church is their Sending Church. If they are not currently serving in a Collaborative Church they need to relationally connect to a Sponsor Church within the Collaborative.
This is important because we believe the best environment to plant a new church is into a community of other churches that are collaboratively working to help that plant get started. The Church Planting Cohort starts each August and is a 9 month finishing school to help leaders prepare for the role of lead pastor. Because of our collaborative way of training these planters, each year our cohort gets better. The Collaborative leaders that teach in this cohort are always getting better, and we are adding more experiences and leaders to the fold every year. That means our schedule changes every year, but we like it that way.
As we said on our partner page for churches we love to collaborate with churches that want to do the work of planting churches by developing their people. For that reason, you can use any of these resources and reach out if you have further questions. And if you want to formally collaborate with us, you can see what that process looks like here.
