The Foundations of Church Planting

Every Church is built on a theological foundation, and that foundation will inevitably shape the ministry. With the right foundation, we have the opportunity to see beautiful churches take shape in the NAB. They can look different, but they will all have the distinct hallmarks of God’s instrument of mission for the world.

Watch this short video as VP of Ministry Outreach Norm Poehlke gives a brief overview of The Foundations of Church Planting.

The Foundations of Church Planting


Twenty pastors and leaders representing ten NorCal NAB churches recently gathered for a 30-hour retreat to work through Module 2 of Ethos. Ethos is a two-year journey where pastors, staff, and leaders gather to receive training in missional/formational pursuits and to reimagine together the church in an increasingly post-Christian world. Presenters Cam Roxburgh, VP of Missional Initiatives, and Kent Carlson, VP of Leadership Formation, led the way, along with special guest professor Scott Hagley from Pittsburg Theological Seminary. Discussion has been rich, and this community of leaders are connecting deeply, learning from one another. Ready to find out more about Ethos in your region?
