Church Planting Residency

A church planting residency is an intensive 10-month immersion program designed to prepare a church planter to effectively launch a new life-giving church.

A church planting residency will allow a future church planter to finish their ministerial education track, engage in Cultivate (a 9-month training course), learn practical ministry skills, and be exposed to the inner-workings of a strong missional church.

Throughout the residency experience, developing church planters will have the opportunity to hear from God, refine their church’s vision, build a strong team, raise the resources they need, and develop the strategies and systems necessary to pull the new church together when they are fully released into their mission field.

Facilitate a CP Residency

Are you a strong sending church desiring to develop and deploy future church planters? Within the CMC, we have created a customizable residency framework for you to implement within your ministry context.

The leadership of The Wesleyan Church  believes:

1) God’s strategy for fulfilling the Great Commission is planting and replanting churches.

2) Church planting is the most effective strategy for seeing lives and communities transformed by the Good News of Jesus Christ.

3) Everything rises and falls on leadership. This is why church planting residencies are so important. Future church planters need time, space, and leadership inspiration in order to fully mature in thier gifts for maximum impact.
