RECENT PROJECTS & INITIATIVES
CMN Hangouts are brand new, one-day events hosted in conjunction with our CMN Launch Training events. These events operate as free workshops for pastors and leaders from the surrounding areas to hear from the best of the best in ministry. After two events, we’ve seen over 70 leaders invest in their growth and learn more about CMN.
CMN Lead is our newest resource platform designed to help develop leaders and multiply the church - for free. After the launch of the platform earlier this year, we’ve seen over 1,900 accounts created and major partnerships come through with River Valley Network and the Life.Church Open Network.
The Multiply Cohort is a one-year process where expert coaches from the Church Multiplication Network come alongside your team to help you craft a multiplication strategy. Since our first gathering in August 2017, we have trained over 100 leaders, coached 23 churches, and have seen 6 new churches as a result of the Cohort!
The CMN Conference is our largest annual gathering where we bring our entire network together to grow, connect, and cast brand new vision for the future of our ministries. In 2019, we saw just shy of 1500 people gather in Dallas, TX to hear from leaders like Sam Chand, Brad Lomenick, and Jeremy Foster.
CMN Leadership Podcast
The CMN Leadership Podcast was started earlier this year with the intent of presenting best ministry and leadership practices to those in our network and beyond! Every week, Chris Railey shares his thoughts on building strong teams, leadership development, and different topics about the church.
CMN U is for people who are 2+ years out from being involved in church planting. We know you have a God-sized dream that requires working on a God-sized strategy right now. You will be joined by other like-minded individuals from around the nation who will help sharpen and clarify your mission.
