Northwest Baptist Convention


Church Planting

The Northwest Baptist Convention’s church planting resources office exists to help facilitate church planting in partnership with local churches, associations and the North American Mission Board. We assist church planting by helping:

  • Recruit those called by God to start churches
  • Train new church planters in the basics of church starting
  • Develop a support network for church planters, including a mentor, supervisor, and partnering churches
  • Develop a relevant and effective strategy for each new church start
  • Provide appropriate financial assistance for each church start
