Church Planting Vision


Launching new churches is one of the best and proven ways to reach new people with the gospel and power of Jesus Christ.

As a movement of churches,  we are committed to continuing to take ground for the kingdom of God through church planting in our nation and into the nations.

In doing so we have committed initially to the vision of launching five new significant churches by 2020 with the plan to continue to plant additional  churches as leaders arise.

Church Planting Progress

We have so far launched four successful and growing new churches in Tauranga, Hamilton, Gisborne and Levin.  

It has been so exciting to see strong and passionate leaders at the helm of these churches gathering amazing people and making a huge difference in their communities.

Training for Church Planting

Normal church planting has a 7% success rate.

We found an organisation called ARC (Associated related churches that completely inverted these stats and has a success rate of at least 93%.  A number of our plants have utilised ARC principles and practices as their main training resource and church planting strategy.  

ARC have seen over 600 churches planted using their model and the vast majority of these churches have launched as financially viable, growing, impacting churches that have gone from strength to strength.

ARC is not a denomination but rather a support network to be utilised by any church movement to help launch viable strong churches.

The training consists of three phases

-ARC 1.0 free online 8 session course

-ARC 2.0 attend training course in person in Australia or USA

-ARC 3.0 Fulfil the assessment process that measure your suitability to plant a church

ARC provide a
huge online resource and ongoing training available

Once a church is planted under ARC many resources and training opportunities are available under the GROW( banner for strengthening and growing new or existing churches
