Who We Are

The Church Multiplication Collective of The Wesleyan Church is an intentional multiplication ecosystem focused on DISCOVERING, DEVELOPING, and DEPLOYING workers for the Lord’s harvest. The CMC’s role in fulfilling the vision of The Wesleyan Church is to:

  • Cultivate a culture of church planting and multiplication (click for featured church plants)
  • Equip healthy churches to multiply new faith communities
  • Provide a world-class support system for workers of the harvest
We believe every community needs a life-giving church led by individuals passionate about sharing the Good News of Jesus. We know it will take all kinds of churches to reach all kinds of people. Because of this, we are committed to helping every church make disciples and multiply until we have a transformational presence in every zip code. Nothing motivates us more than seeing workers of the Lord’s harvest helping people find their way back to God.

Go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and teach these new disciples to obey all of the commands I have given you.”

– Jesus

If you are thinking about planting or multiplying your church, you’ve come to the right place. Within the Church Multiplication Collective (CMC) you will find all of our church planting systems, resources, and helpful connections. Our goal within the CMC is to help The Wesleyan Church become a movement that reproduces at a 6% rate (currently, 100 churches a year). We know this God-sized goal will not happen without intentionality and God’s blessing. The CMC is here to serve you, but we also need you. A collective, by definition, is a group of entities motivated by a common issue or interest, working together to achieve a unified objective. We know the world’s issue and Jesus gave us the common interest, so let’s lock arms together and accomplish Jesus’ Great Commission!
A Message from our General Superintendent

There are certain priorities and pursuits that matter and last. They start in the heart of God and through focused prayer capture the heart of The Wesleyan Church. We are commissioned and empowered to be a disciple-making movement (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8) in multiplying locations. This calls for Kingdom risks, an entrepreneurism of eternal consequence.

We celebrate every time a disciple makes a disciple and a congregation’s spiritual fervor boils over so intensely the church multiplies itself. There must be a variety of models (requiring a variety of gifts and callings) in that multiplication because the church was not meant to stay put. We will celebrate these things until our people are bringing a transforming presence into communities scattered across the mission field of North America and to the ends of the earth.

Healthy churches reproduce. It is in their DNA to take new territory. This will require “all hands on deck” – engaging laity as well as clergy, the full giftedness of women in leadership, a range of generations and multiple ethnicities. I unapologetically challenge you to join me in giving yourself to the spread of the Church… for the glory of God.

Dr. Wayne Schmidt
General Superintendent

Santes Beatty

Santes Beatty

Multiethinic Multiplication Catalyst

Santes Beatty is an ordained pastor in the Wesleyan Church who has a passion for seeing discipleship and multiplication happen for all people groups that cross cultural, ethnic, socioeconomic, gender and generational lines. He sees his role as helping our denomination by building teams that pursue unity, while facilitating connections and developing resources for our districts, churches and leaders. He is a native of Raeford, N.C. and did his undergraduate work at Guilford College in Greensboro, NC. Upon graduating he took on a role in the newly formed office of African American Affairs which later evolved into the department of Multicultural Education. Soon he found himself bi-vocational as youth pastor in a predominately black Baptist context and a predominately white Quaker institution. While pursuing his Masters in Ministry Leadership at Huntington University in Indiana he accepted a position at Kentwood Community Church in the greater Grand Rapids, Michigan area where he first became a part of The Wesleyan Church in 2010. There he served as a High School Pastor and member of the teaching team for four years. In 2014, he became the Director of Multiethnic Ministries within the Church Multiplication and Discipleship division at The Wesleyan Church World Headquarters. He and his family served in Indianapolis, Indiana for two years before returning to the greater Greensboro, N.C. where he worked remotely in the same role, but also served at both Christ Wesleyan Church as a Ministry Coach and a new church plant, United City Greensboro, as the Teaching Pastor. During that season Santes also served in the North Carolina East District on the Executive Team as their Director of Multiethnic Ministries. Recently, he responded to the call to become the Campus Pastor of Mosaic Midtown Church in Detroit, which is a multiethnic, multigenerational and multi-socioeconomic church in the heart of the city. It is a campus of Kentwood Community Church in Grand Rapids, MI and a part of the Great Lakes Region. His role at the Wesleyan Church Headquarters has shifted to where he now serves as Multiethnic Multiplication Catalyst and gives leadership to leader cohorts, huddles and the multiethnic national team. He is a much sought after speaker, lecturer and trainer being certified in Cultural Intelligence and Unconscious Bias training and assessment as well as Colors Inventory. He is a coaching consultant for Mosaix Global Network and is the founder of Crossover Consulting. He and his wife Nicole have six children: Tesia, Christian (2006), Josiah, Serenity, Sarah and their newest addition, Cami (their Golden Retriever).
