Church planting is a Biblical mandate.

When Jesus gave us ‘The Great Commission’ (Matthew 28: 18-20), the call was to make disciples. Traditional evangelism has often been concerned only with “decisions for Christ,” but without on-going discipleship, these decisions are not true life conversions. We believe that the local church is vital to true conversions and discipleship. As missiologist C. Peter Wagner said, “Planting new churches is the most effective evangelistic methodology known under heaven.”

For more information, read Dr. Tim Keller’s ‘Why Plant Churches.’ 

Our goal is for all church plants in the Western US to be healthy, established church-planting churches.

If you are looking to plant a church and desire help and support along that journey, or if you are an existing church that desires to be more deeply involved in church planting, Acts 29 US West may be for you! As a member of our network, you would receive support, training, coaching, and a group of like-minded pastors and churches of which to be a part. The process to join our network follows the Acts 29 assessment process of application, interview, assessment, and candidacy. We want to help set you up for success, both at the outset and throughout your journey.
