We Are ARC
We do this by providing relationships, resources, and opportunities to leaders of new and existing churches so that they can thrive.
ARC began with a dream to resource a new generation of church planters and for those churches to be relationally connected. The relationships formed within ARC, either as a church planted through ARC or as a church that invests in our mission, function like an extended family.
Fast forward to today, ARC has seen more than one thousand churches planted since starting in 2000 and continues its vision to see a thriving church in every community, reaching people with the message of Jesus.

We have a vision for what’s to come.
In 2000, Greg Surratt, Founding Pastor of Seacoast Church in Charleston, South Carolina believed every community deserved a life-giving church and that God was asking him to be a part of planting 2,000 churches worldwide. But he didn’t know how to make that happen.
Greg met Billy Hornsby. Billy was fascinated by Greg’s “life-giving” weekend services that were attracting large numbers of unchurched people. Billy saw this as a model that should be emulated, and with it, he felt he could put “feet” to Greg’s vision of planting 2,000 churches.
