Founders Ministries Church Planting Network

Church Plant

Founders Ministries is prayerfully pursuing the development of a church planting network that is confessional, baptistic, and missional. 

We are in the process of developing a database comprised of individuals and churches who:

(1) Have planted a church in the last 10 years

(2) Are currently in the process of planting a church,

(3) Are looking to plant within the next five years. 

If you would like to be included in this database and communications network, please send us the following information:

  1. Name (first and last)
  2. Address
  3. Phone
  4. Email
  5. Name of church or church plant
  6. Website
  7. Brief description of where you are in the process

The purpose of this information is to develop a communications hub for future developments, including local networking, conferences/bootcamps, and training/coaching.
