Never Plant Alone
Whether you’re a planter discerning the first steps of a new church, or a church planting network, it can be hard for leaders to see the bigger picture, to get connected with the people you need to know, and to get access to the trusted resources and training you need to flourish. With so many of us who share a similar calling to plant churches, we should never have to plant alone.
Serving Planters and Networks
The Church Planting Initiative at Fuller Seminary holistically forms global church planters and networks to start diverse, gospel-centered, church-planting churches. We partner with networks, denominations, churches, and individuals to train planters through academic courses, professional certificates, online training, and learning cohorts.
Deepen Biblical Theology
Our work in planting churches is mutually informed by our reading of God's faithful activity througout scripture.
Promote Spiritual Formation
The healthiest churches are planted by leaders who have been spiritually formed in the image of Christ.
Develop Missional Competencies
Moving into a post-Christendom world means church planters need new toolkits to help them adapt to unique contexts.
Church planting leaders are looking for best practices, narratives, and tools to fuel their ministry. Fuller is creating and curating essential content from around the world to make sure you are equipped with everything you need to lead well in planting churches.

Join an Event
The Holy Spirit is calling and sending church planting leaders across the globe. As they scatter into what often feels like lonely work, Fuller is gathering them into community to encourage, support, challenge, and pray for one another. We hope you'll join an upcoming event.
PREPARING TO PLANT
If you sense God is calling you to plant a church but you haven't yet, you are in the season of preparation.
The Fuller Church Planting Initiative works with church planters around the world, and our goal is to not only empower you but to connect you to church planting networks.
Occasionally we gather planters for training, webinars, and resourcing. Sign up below to get immediate access.
NETWORK LEADER ROUNDTABLES
If you're leading a church planting network, who do you talk to when you need resources and guidance?
The Fuller Church Planting Initiative convenes a monthly roundtable of church planting network leaders to gather resources, best practices, and begin to form a picture of what God is doing with church planting around the world.
Get invited by signing up below.
"We do not simply wake up one day and decide to plant a church. In response to the call that God has been forming in us over many years (and possibly decades) before we ever considered starting a new church, we then train—much like athletes train—to live into that call."
—Len Tang, Director of the Fuller Church Planting Initiative
