Sending churches play a critical role in church planting. A church planter’s health often relies on a strong sending partner.

A sending church leads as a plant’s primary partner, taking responsibility for the plant until it is strong enough on its own. Providing guidance and accountability are key roles.


Sending churches pray for planters and teams.


Sending churches coach and care for a plant or planter.
