Church Planters Forum and Retreat | June 15-17, 2022

The fields are white and ready to harvest. For nearly two millennia, church planting has been the way Jesus’ disciples have gone about reaping that harvest. The goal of Church Planters’ Forum and Retreat 2022 is to strengthen a vision for indigenous church planting around the world, including church plants in or near North American cities. This gathering of church planters (and others who desire to be involved in church planting) encourages learning from each other and discourages competition and suspicion. It also provides a unique opportunity for church planters who are experiencing burnout or disappointment to receive fresh vision!


Who is invited?

We welcome anyone who is actively involved in church planting, those preparing for church planting, as well as pastors and overseers.

We intend to promote an atmosphere that respects the roles of church authority, practical applications to Scripture, disciplined church life, and brotherhood accountability. Anyone whose concept of church does not include these ingredients is asked to defer to those who do hold these convictions.
