Church Planting

As part of our church’s mission to make a difference, we want to be a church that plants other disciple-making churches in our nation and across the globe. Here are the tangible steps we are taking to make this vision a reality.

What are the Focus Areas and how were they chosen?

The North American Mission Board has identified 32 cities in the United States and Canada with great kingdom potential. These cities have high population densities and diversity but maintain a low ratio of churches to people. (1:6,198 – Ratio of Southern Baptist Congregations to population in North America) North American Mission Board Focus Areas.

Church Planting Cohort

Long Hollow offers a 10 month church planting cohort from August-May that is designed to help planters launch healthy churches. The cohort will be packed with resources and training, both online and on-site, to give planters the content and exposure for a well rounded learning experience. If you are interested in this cohort, please contact our Church Planting Pastor TJ Joy at

Church Planting Pipeline

At Long Hollow we want members to take part in the church planting process through prayer, joining a church plant team, or becoming a church planter. The North American Mission Board has provided content and curriculum that will help guide you through your journey. Please email our Church Planting Pastor at for more information on the Church Planting Pipeline.

Supporting Church Planters Through Care Teams

Healthy churches are planted by healthy church planting couples. Long Hollow provides care for our church planters across North America by serving them through prayer, taking trips to encourage the pastors and their families, resourcing them, developing creative elements, and so much more.
