Planting new churches everywhere for everyone.
Your calling can be fulfilled in a variety of settings:
language & people groups
Join the Church Planting Movement
With 10 million people encircled by the Great Lakes, the choices are limitless. Those looking to start new church plants will find sites where no one has expressed the Good News of Christ. Others who can cast a fresh vision for an older, existing church can replant a church. Opportunities are here for the church planter who is vocational, bi-vocational or co-vocational.
Church Planter Internship
Some church plants and existing churches are prepared to welcome eager interns who would like to serve alongside dynamic leadership teams for one year to test whether church planting or church leadership is their true calling. We can introduce you to the right people at the right time to develop a customized plan in a variety of settings.
We want to see 550 healthy churches by the end of 2025. You can find a place of service within Send Network Michigan.
Church Planter Apprenticeship
Some of our church plants serve as relational training schools for those who have successfully gone through the assessment retreat process. These apprenticeships help you build meaningful relationships with your mentors and the people you serve within the congregation. These day-to-day ministry experiences and successes will strengthen your resolve to plant a church on your own one day.
