Launching, Connecting, & Equipping the Local Church

We exist to see a thriving church in every community, reaching people with the message of Jesus.


We are a cooperative of independent churches from different denominations, networks, and backgrounds who strategically resource church planters and pastors to help them reach people with the message of Jesus.

Get Resourced

Not only do we want to come alongside you relationally, but we also believe in connecting you with resources so you and your church can thrive.
