Church Planting

LEADERS FORMING DISCIPLES IN THE PERSON, STRATEGY, AND MESSAGE OF GOD BY SHAPING THE RHYTHMS OF SENDING AND GATHERING


This is the goal of church planting within the NAB. We remain committed to planting churches that reflect the unique ways God is working in different settings. Our vision is that each planter will be versed in the NAB missional conversation in order to plant in a manner consistent with this theology. We are not model driven. Instead, we remain committed to ensuring each planter is equipped to plant a church that reflects the essential elements of God’s design.
