Church Planting

Our Vision

For the last number of years, the NAB has committed itself, as a community of 400 churches in Canada and the US, to a missional and formational movement. We are leaders, churches, and international partners formed in the image of Christ and joining with God in His missionary work to reconcile all creation back to Himself. As the Father sent the Son, the Son sends the Spirit, and the Spirit now sends us – the church.

To that end, church multiplication is the natural overflow of a people formed in Christ’s image and joining His mission. We are working hard to create a church planting movement that multiplies the way of Jesus in neighborhoods, rural counties, cities, and suburbs in an ongoing demonstration that the life found in Christ is the best of all possible lives.

This is what we seek to multiply. How is God nudging you to join us?

Our Planting Distinctives

The NAB is on a missional/formational movement and seeking to plant churches, establish missional communities, and multiply ministry reach that creatively and strategically invites people far from God into the best of all lives, that of following Jesus.

Every group and denomination involved in planting has a deep desire to advance the Gospel’s reach. But what makes each group unique will help you decide if the NAB is the right fit as a Kingdom partner as you seek to join God in his work of church planting. We are entering planting agreements to establish new campuses, congregations, and ministries with a myriad of styles but who all share some common commitments:

•               Commitment to the Robust Gospel.

•               Commitment to NAB Missional/Formational movement.

•               Commitment to level five multiplication.

Network Partners

To assist us in creating the most robust system of recruitment, assessment, training, and support, we have sought out influential church planting networks in North America.

In the US, Excel Leadership Network provides assistance with recruitment, assessment (which they call Discovery Centers), and ongoing support of church planters post-launch through regional connection events and conferences.
