LEARN

Take the first steps toward launching a church by taking assessments, connecting with a CMN Representative, gaining AG credentials, and watching training videos

1. TAKE THE IWANTTOPLANTACHURCH.COM 2-MINUTE CHURCH PLANTING QUIZ

2. CONNECT WITH YOUR DISTRICT/NETWORK CMN REP

SEE THE LIST OF ALL CMN REPS

3. SCHEDULE A MEETING WITH YOUR CMN REP

Try to schedule time to meet face-to-face with your district's CMN Representative. Sometimes this may not be possible, so have a backup plan to communicate through Skype, Google Hangouts, or another conferencing tool. Your CMN Rep will help you walk through the Learn, Launch, Lead process of planting a church.

4. CONFIRM YOUR AG CREDENTIALS

The Church Multiplication Network is the official church planting arm of the Assemblies of God in the United States. In order to plant as a CMN church, you will need to be credentialed as an AG minister.

5. CONNECT WITH YOUR DISTRICT/NETWORK OFFICE

Let your district know that you are planning to start a church in their area, and ask about potential church planting resources your district may offer.
