Church Planting

We've been given a mandate. "Go into all the world and preach the gospel..."

"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations..." Because new churches effectively help non-Christians, seekers and spiritually curious people become followers of Jesus, Mountain/Plains is committed to helping resource fresh works across our region.

Whether in the Mountain states or those on the northern Great Plains, we've an unwavering commitment to this prospect: identifying, training, resourcing and releasing qualified ministers for planting new and better Open Bible churches.

In our region, we've two highly populated areas that we are targeting for church planting endorsing and using the "Mother/Daughter" model:

Imagine...

  • 1,200,000 Nebraskans call the Omaha/Lincoln corridor home

  • Approximately 4,000,000 Coloradoans stretching from the Fort Collins/Loveland/Greeley Area through Denver and her suburbs on to Colorado Springs and Pueblo;

  • Thriving metro areas of 100,000+ such as Grand Island, NE, Sioux Falls, SD, Fargo, ND, Bismarck, ND and Billings, MT

  • Local economies that range from stable to growing... bucking national trends;

  • Areas abounding in cross-cultural ministry opportunities;

  • A proven church planting coordinator/coach/trainer/mentor on the ground to help assist those whom the Spirit of God is enjoining with this effort... Imagining that yet? Well, that's the picture of Mountain Plains Region and the necessity for church planting!

Through the regional office, investment for this effort is gratefully being accepted directly or in conjunction with our regional Mission Venture Plan. If you or your church would like to help resource this effort, please send donations to the regional office and mark them "Church Planting."

And may the Lord God richly bless you as you invest in His kingdom's advance! For those interested in applying for church planting in Mountain/Plains Region, click on the link provided below, fill out the preliminary application and send it to the included address:
