AMBITIOUS?

ABSOLUTELY!

International research indicates that denominations need to plant new congregations at a rate of 3% per year, just to maintain the status quo. Our goal is not one of mere maintenance, but of growth. We want to see 5% growth in our congregations, which equates to 23 new churches per year.

Planting 230 congregations in 10 years … isn’t that too ambitious? Actually, no. It’s impossible! That’s why we need your prayers, participation and the anointing of the Holy Spirit.

We want to see every congregation in the LCA/NZ understanding itself as either a sending church or a partner church.
