Affiliated Church Planting OrganizationsWe are currently affiliated with the following organizations:
Converge Assessment Center (formerly TeAmerica) is one of the longest running, most influential and highly trusted Church Planting Assessment Centers in the country. Under the leadership of Paul Johnson and then JD Pearring the Assessment Center touched some of the best church planters in the country. Now a new era for the Assessment Center has begun under the leadership of Dr. Curt Gruber and Marlan Mincks as they build on the solid foundation laid by their predecessors by upgrading and strengthening the process.
Converge Pastor Placement Process
Just as there are three dimensions to a cube, there are dimensions to finding the right pastor. Converge introduces “P3“, the Pastor Placement Process that focuses on three dimensions to finding the right pastor.
C2C Network (Canadian Church Planting Assessment Center)
The C2C network is a missions based, national network, uniquely Canadian, that exists to see Canada reached with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. While it is true that many of us in the C2C network are affiliated with the Mennonite Brethren Church, we want to see Gospel Centered, Spirit Led, Mission Focused churches planted across Canada, and we recognize that we cannot accomplish this task on our own. Therefore, the C2Cnetwork is unapologetically interdenominational. We are passionate about collaborating with other denominations to train and coach church planters. Together we desire to develop “best practices” in Church Planting in order to accomplish this purpose.
The Evangelical Covenant Church
The Evangelical Covenant Church is a rapidly growing multiethnic denomination in the United States and Canada with ministries on five continents of the world. Founded in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, the ECC values the Bible as the word of God, the gift of God’s grace and ever-deepening spiritual life that comes through a faith with Jesus Christ, the importance of extending God’s love and compassion to a hurting world, and the strength that comes from unity within diversity.
Acts 29 Network
The mission of Acts 29 is to band together churches, which, for the sake of Jesus and the gospel, plant new churches and replant dead and dying churches around the world. This work is done in obedience to the great commission (Matt. 28:18-20), with the goal of seeing millions of lives changed by the power of the good news of Jesus Christ.
