New Church Start Academy 2020 Application

The work of starting new things in a local church requires creativity and vision for ministry at a whole new level. Whether you are considering a call to plant a new church or want to discover how to start a new church right where you are, the Committee on New and Vital Congregations (CNVC) wants to be your partner in your personal and spiritual growth. New Church Start Academy 2020, a yearlong learning cohort, will begin January of 2020 and conclude just before Advent. The Academy is an intentional community of potential church planters who experience a CULTURE of worship, multiplication, and accountability in a COHORT over the course of one year, as they develop MINISTRY ACTION PLANS for reaching new people in new and existing places. Cohort members will be required to participate in a monthly Zoom meeting with reading assignments and a couple of face-to-face retreats.
