Church Planting

We exist to see a thriving church in every community reaching people with the message of Jesus. Thanks to our ARC Family, we have been able to assist hundreds of couples plant churches nation-wide and form global networks to launch churches around the world. Planting life-giving churches is at the core of all we do. We are excited to celebrate every success and milestone as these churches grow, build, and make an impact on their city.
