Church Planting

Church planting

As part of our church’s mission to Change the World, 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.

Long Hollow offers a church planting residency designed to help church planters learn and implement a Discipleship Pathway, develop a church planting prospectus, raise financial support, and recruit a church planting team.

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.
