Have you ever dreamed about impacting your community in a big way? One of many models for planting a church is to be sent out as a large launch. This means making a big splash into a community right from your first Sunday. Join us for a conversation about how the Vineyard is partnering with ARC (The Association of Related Churches) to send out large teams of people into new communities and make an impact for the kingdom on day one. Learn about how this model is biblically sound, culturally impactful, and what the process looks like for Vineyard church planters to be sent out. This conversation was led by Joel Lowery (Multiply Vineyard’s Large Launch Specialist, Senior Pastor at Crossroads Vineyard in Fredericksburg, VA) and Chris Meekins (Church Planter, Pacific City Church in Santa Monica, CA).
What You’ll Learn:
