Church Planting

Church Planting

The gospel penetrates and permeates throughout the world through churches who plant churches. 

Spreading the Gospel Through Church Planting

Church planting is part of the culture here at Sovereign Grace Church. It is how this local church began and it is one of our strategies to advance the gospel. We believe we steward our resources well and spread the gospel further when we not only build up Sovereign Grace Church as a healthy, gospel-centered church, but also multiply by planting new gospel-centered churches.

How We Plant Churches:

PartnerWe Partner

Through our partnership with Sovereign Grace Churches, we strategize and combine financial, physical, and human resources to plant local churches.

TrainWe Equip

Through our Internship and Residency Programs, we raise up, train, and prepare church planters and church planting teams. 

SendWe Send

Culturally, we build into our church the joy and excitement of holding loosely to the men and women God places into this local church for the possibility of leading or partnering in future church plants.


We support our vision for church planting in three ways: pray, give, and go. You also can spend time as an individual or as a group pleading with the Lord on behalf of these new churches and their leaders. You can give financially to church planting or a specific church planter. And you can go, if the Lord calls you, to plant a new church or to be a part of one.
