The mission of the Asbury Church Planting Connection is to connect, train, and mobilize God’s people to plant and re-mission reproducing churches in every context. We are a decentralized connectional network made up of like-minded church planters, networks, and organizations. We hope to enable relational connections for church planters through an interactive website, an annual gathering, and through regional partners located in strategic geographic locations.
A regional partner is a church or organization that is actively engaged in gathering, mentoring, and mobilizing God’s people to reproduce new churches in their context. Since the inception of the Church Planting Initiative at Asbury in 2015, we have been partnering with hubs informally to create training opportunities across the globe. With the launch of the Connection, we are happy to consider all of our partners as official hubs through which we can continue to channel mobilization resources.
Planting churches requires critical and intimate engagement with the particular context in which the new church will grow. This means the best way to create successful, missional plants is to partner with local leaders who know the needs of their context. Every Hub is an organic expression of their particular city, and the Asbury Church Planting Connection hopes to serve as a catalyst for the unique work already being done there through funded fellowships, training institutes, and further resourcing.
