Church Planters Renew Communities

Church planters share about God in communities by visiting homes, leading home fellowships and studies of the Word of God, and discipling followers. They are trained to be self-sufficient “tent makers” based on the example of Paul.

Training for a church planter is a year including 3 months of classroom work where over 100 hours of the Word of God are taught each month.

Each month of classroom work is followed by three months of practical implementation in the field.

  • First four months emphasize sharing about God.

  • Second four months emphasize discipleship.

  • Last four months emphasize the establishment of a fellowship.

A scholarship for a church planter is $3,600 and impacts hundreds of people. In addition training a church planter through the 12 month program, the donation:

  • Sends 500 children to VBS

  • Sends 30 adults to a 10 months literacy training program

Every sponsor receives a plaque with a picture of the church planter, the location where the church planter is serving, and a brief description of the community.

A report on the progress of the church planter is sent every four months during the year of training.
