The Emerging Regions Network exists to convene new networks of church planters and church-planting churches throughout African and Asian contexts for the glory of Jesus.
Emerging Regions spans from the Western-most countries of Africa to the Eastern-most countries of Asia. In many of these places, the number of Christians is few. In others, the church and its leaders are under-resourced, and at times Christians face severe persecution. Emerging Regions seeks to provide training and coaching for church planters reaching into these areas while working towards assessments and support for existing churches and those in the planting process. We long to see a diversity of regional and cross-cultural gospel partnerships to make disciples of Jesus and plant churches.
Let’s work together to see churches planted, collaborative networks launched, and Jesus worshipped to the ends of the earth!
As a family of church-planting churches we are about one thing: church planting. We exist to encourage, resource, facilitate, support and equip churches to plant churches that will plant church-planting churches!
