A New Training Tool

We are in the process of launching a new training tool for potential church planters.  The Church Planter Academy is made up of short training videos (found on Ignite’s YouTube channel). We created this tool for the purpose of introducing some of the basics in church planting to people who are interested in pursuing this exciting possibility.

The first round of videos details some of the things church planting organizations look for in a church planter.  We introduce some of the basic skills for planters and ask some questions to help you determine whether God might be calling you into the field of church planting.  One video details the importance of taking time to be with Jesus on a regular basis.  Each video contains some “homework” that the person viewing can implement for growth.

The Academy will focus on four areas of training:

  • Church Planting Nuts and Bolts (best practices of church planting)
  • Spiritual Formation (a critical area for long-term sustainability)
  • Ministry Skills (basics of ministry a planter can expect to undertake)
  • Basic Doctrine (taking a look at the Restoration Movement)

The plan is to have 20 videos (some in each of these areas) on our channel by the end of the year.  Go to http://www.ignitechurchplanting.com and click on the YouTube link at the bottom of the page to check out the Church Planter Academy.  If you are thinking about planting, this is a great way to start the journey.
