Check out these innovative, inspiring opportunities in church planting from V3!
Connect with others in church planting for mentoring and/or networking!
Most Church Planters are trained in how to draw a crowd and preach a good sermon, but few have been equipped for the future the church is facing. Many are starving for guidance and grounded tools on how to cultivate movemental types of church bodies. Our training is holistic, communal, peer-based, and practice oriented.
Early Trappists Monks created enterprises that funded their missional work. In much the same way, today’s marketplace planters and pioneers will artistically find ways to start businesses that contribute social good while engaging civic structures of a particular place. Join us this fall for real training in how Mission and the Market converge in context.
Intercultural Movemental Planting (Free Webinar July 25th)
Churches continue to be one of the most segregated institutions along the lines of race and class. How might a movement of beloved communities conspire for change amidst the fractured conditions facing our neighborhoods? Drawing from the wisdom of intercultural movements led by people of color and poor people in the US and Global South we are launching a training cohort of Planters to walk humbly, love mercy, and do justice as a witness to the gospel.
Many churches in the United States have either stopped growing or are in decline. Yet, what is more concerning is the drift away from following Jesus deeper into their local places on mission. Pastors are looking for guidance in how to help their church make a missional transition without blowing it up. Do you face old policies and outdated procedures that prevent this? Do you long to honor the past while innovating towards the future? Join us this Fall.
