Church Planting Partners

Districts of the LCMS, regional judicatories of other Christian church bodies, networks, circuits, and individual congregations are invited to become Church Planting Partners. Church Planting Partners, and their members receive reduced pricing on our deliverable services such as seminars, assessments, training, coaching, in-service forums and more. Non-partner districts pay the full cost.

Partnerships are intended to be collaborative relationships which "equip God's people to multiply the harvest." As such, the Center works with Church Planting Partners to help them customize and define a partnership which helps partners reach their strategic goals for new church multiplication, development of new churches, and planter support.

For Church Planting Partnership Information, contact Executive Director Dr. Peter Meier, peter.meier@cui.edu.
