First Church Planter Intensives Begin This Weekend

This is the final week to register for the January 24-25, 2020 Church Planter Launch Intensive at the Plant City Church of God in Plant City, Florida. It is the first of five to be held between now and May 1, 2020.

According to Mitch Maloney, director of the Office of Church Planting for the Church of God, Plant City is approximately 30 minutes east of Tampa, Fla. and is a great place to train church planting couples, launch team members, Church Planting Task Force members, and pastors who are interested in planting churches. The intensives will train for organic church plants which include mother/daughter church plants, multi-site churches, and urban center church plants.

The second Church Planter Launch Intensive is coming up on January 31-February 1. It will be held at Patten University in Oakland, California. For those in the western part of the U.S. and have an interest in planting a life-giving church, please make your plans now to participate in this valuable learning experience.

“California/Nevada has launched nine church plants and three affiliate churches since September 1, 2019,” Maloney stated. “Arizona has launched seven church plants and organized four new churches since the same date. God is giving an increase for those who are moving forward to reap a ripe harvest.”

“I talked with a perspective church planter yesterday who said, ‘My wife and I are constantly thinking and praying about planting a new church!’” Maloney continued.
“If God has spoken to you, or impressed you to plant a church, you need to be a part of this exciting time for church planting in the Church of God. You can go to our website, cogcpn.com, for details and follow the links to register. You may also register for one of the other upcoming Launch Intensives. You will find the dates and locations on our website. Go now to cogcpn.com and find one nearest to you.”
