Planter Training

Every planter is fully prepared to be a healthy leader of a transformational and multiplying church.

One of the primary reasons planters struggle and fail is due to a lack of adequate preparation. It is our ambition that every planter and planter spouse is well prepared and trained for the journey before them.

Our training process involves a six-month small group cohort led by licensed trainers. This best-in-class training is built around 12 essential competencies necessary for the successful planting of a church.
