Church Planting

A Disciple-Making Church

One of the most effective methods for evangelizing the lost and growing them as disciples is through the establishment of new churches.

Pinelake seeks to be a disciple-making church through training, equipping and sending out church planters to establish life-giving churches. 

Pinelake’s church planting efforts are expressed in four ways:

  1. Planting churches
  2. Leading a church planting residency
  3. Mobilizing volunteers to serve with church planters
  4. Participation with like-minded churches and organizations in efforts to equip and train church planters

Church Planting Residency

Our Church Planting Residency is an 11-month training program which prepares church planters to establish life-giving churches. The church planting resident participates in learning environments and customized coaching by Pinelake staff members. Learn more about the Church Planting Residency.
