Introduction to
Church Planting
Introduction to Church Planting

God has chosen to use the church for the spread of the Gospel and the salvation of souls. But there is an incredible need for more churches that preach the Gospel, equip saints for the work of ministry, and train up leaders here and across the world.


Through the study of the apostle Paul’s method of church planting, the apprentice will develop his/her philosophy of missions (missiology) and  the church (ecclesiology). The hope of this course is to help you catch a vision for church planting in you context.


Duration: 4 - 6 weeks @ 5 hours per week


Discipleship is the act of being and making followers of Jesus. This is the means through which we are called to build the church. No matter

the context, disciple-making requires intentional living with the purpose to conform people to the stature and fullness of Christ.


Duration: 4 - 6 weeks @ 5 hours per week
