South Pacific Church Planting

We are the church planting arm of the South Pacific Alliance.

Our ministry focus is the lead church planter/couple. 

10 Steps to Church Planting

Our Purpose

Our Purpose is to equip congregations to discover, develop, and deploy leaders to plant healthy reproductive churches that are reaching their communities for Christ. We do that through Greenhouse Environment Training and Support and by providing planters with ACTS: Assessment, Coaching, Training and Support. 

Our Opportunity:

We plant churches throughout our region by responding to the opportunities God brings and raising up leaders. Here are a few of the opportunities we’re leaning into right now:

  • Greenhouse Churches- Healthy churches plant healthy churches. We are leaning in to our existing churches and helping them become “Greenhouse Environments” that raise up leaders to plant new churches.
  • Nations to the Neighborhoods- In the South Pacific Alliance region, we have unparalleled opportunities to reach the nations right in our own communities. 44 million immigrants live in the U.S. and half of largest immigrant populations are in our region. God is bringing the nations to our neighborhoods.

Church Planting from a Greenhouse Church

Do you want your church to become a Greenhouse Environment that develops future leaders for the harvest? Are you interested in uncovering how you can help multiply your influence for the Kingdom? In this series of brief videos you will explore practical ways to help your church create a greenhouse environment, a church that helps pastors, church planters and missionaries grow and prepares them for ministry and the mission field. We will look at examples of Greenhouse environments, including both the Church at Antioch and the Gospel Tabernacle, the birthplace of the Alliance. We will give an overview of a proven training path to develop leaders that will reproduce through a 2-3 year leadership track (Look, Learn, Lead, Launch).  And we will spend time looking at very practical ways to support church multiplication right now from your context.
