A Church Planting Summit
Over the last few years, we have begun to see the amazing impact that church planting can have to further the gospel in our nation and across the globe. Through this summit, we want to share what we believe God is doing through the work of church planters, and implant in you the desire to see the gospel dispersed throughout the world.
This Summit is for you if you are:
A potential planter seeking resources
A present planter who needs inspiration
A pastor seeking to plant new campuses
A pastor or associate pastor who has a deep call to consider planting a new church
A denominational or institutional leader looking for new church planting paradigms
We've got a Great lineup
We have pulled together a top-notch panel of presenters who are ready to inspire, encourage, and equip you with practical church planting advice. These nationally recognized individuals understand the unique opportunity that church planting affords, and have compelling insight into how it works. Here are the keynote speakers:
Keith has traveled the United States and abroad leading worship, engaging in music ministry, and preaching. He is currently the lead pastor of Destiny Christian Center International, a growing multi-cultural, multi-generational church in Muncie, Indiana. He has written over 150 songs and produced 7 recordings.
Steve is the author of many books, including the bestselling Conspiracy of Kindness. He has worked with thousands of churches that have been transformed as they put God’s kindness into practice.
Steve is lead pastor of Crossroads Church in the greater Pittsburgh area and has grown the church to over 2500 members over the past 12 years with five campuses. His dream is to plant 100 churches in the next 10 years.
