USA Church Planting

Church planting is God's way of spreading the Gospel and establishing a community-based, disciple-making agency. The driving issue in church planting is fulfilling the Great Commission. Church planting also expands the personnel and financial base for foreign missions. Many communities are without a Christ-centered, Bible-based ministry, so church planting is desperately needed in America.
