Church planting centers are local churches who have made a serious commitment to evangelism, disciple-making, leadership development, mission sending and church planting. These churches are focusing on multiplication at all levels. Every Believer in Christ is encouraged to be a part of the church's disciple-making process. Every disciple is encourage to be a trainer of trainers. Every leader knows that his or her role is to develop other leaders. Every small group or class is encouraged to reproduce and multiply. These churches have a vision for reaching their city and measure success by community transformation.
The GOBA Church Planting Centers Cohort is a group of church leaders who meet together monthly to share ideas, encourage one another, and pray for each other's churches to be successful in fulfilling Acts 1:8. More information about the objectives of the monthly meetings is included below. If your church is interested in becoming a church planting center and/or joining the cohort, please contact Mark Weible at the GOBA office.
