Purpose and goals

of Church Planters’ Forum and Retreat

  • To provide a forum for kingdom Christians to strengthen a vision for indigenous church planting around the world, including church planting in or near North American cities.
  • To provide a setting for church planters to learn from each other and avoid pitfalls common to this work in God’s kingdom.
  • To provide an atmosphere that will revive and bring fresh vision to church planters who are experiencing burnout or disappointment.
  • To develop relationships among church planters that will discourage suspicion and competition.
  • To provide a non-urban retreat for urban workers and families.
