Church Planting Resident at The Village Church

Website The Village Church

The New Testament model for the spread of the gospel is churches planting churches. As Christians proclaimed the gospel and the number of Christ’s followers increased, new churches began. Churches then planted other churches as they equipped, trained up, and sent out men to lead new churches.

Through our Church Planting Program, we equip and send church planters to reach the unreached with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Church Planting Program prepares men in both the theological “whys” and practical “how-tos” of church leadership before launching them into pastoral ministry and church planting.

The Church Planting Program has been reverse-engineered from the Acts 29 application and assessment process centered around their 11 competencies. Fundamentally, we develop planters by investing in them, preparing them, providing for them, serving them as venture catalysts, and planting them as a multiplying church. We focus on leadership issues such as character development, self-awareness, gospel-centered living, missional ecclesiology, strategic planning, and staff development.

Church planters will be immersed within The Village pastors, staff, and church body—and with strategic ministry partners across DFW and the nation—for the intentional development of godly character and leadership competence. They will meet weekly in a cohort to learn and discuss course materials with the Church Planting Director (Tyler Powell), staff, and elders, and develop and engage with their personal discipleship plan. In addition, church planters will be active in the life of the local church community in various forms of participation and service as a means of hands-on ministry.
