Back in 1996, Allison Park Church helped to plant its first church. Fifteen years later, over ten churches have been planted (mostly in the Pittsburgh area) and a MULTI-CHURCH network (MCM Network) has been formed where pastors and leaders connect, receive coaching and coordinate outreach and ministry together.
Over the past few months, we have sensed God speaking to us about the future. What should be our church planting goal as we move forward? What should be our strategy?
- It seemed logical to believe that we could continue to plant churches at the rate of one new church per year over the next ten years. We have operated at about that pace in the past.
- One of the churches planted (CityReach Church) has also begun to reproduce. There are now three churches that are part of the CityReach Church Network. Maybe we could believe with them for one a year out of their planting efforts?
A logical church planting goal would have been to attempt to plant 25 churches in the next ten years. That seems like it could be doable based on our past track record.
But God spoke to us about believing for a GOD-SIZED number of new churches.
This is where the 100 Church Goal comes from. We are believing that God will enable us to plant 100 new churches within the next ten years. This website is designed to help us communicate about these plans, celebrate churches that are being planted, and recruit people into the process.
There are some links provided to give you more information if you would like to get involved. We will do our best to keep you posted about things as God provides.
PRAY WITH US THAT GOD WOULD RELEASE A GREAT CHURCH PLANTING WAVE!
