“Does ARC know what to do with a couple like us?”

Onterio and Crystal Green sincerely wanted to understand if they were a fit for planting a church with ARC. They felt a God-given love for the Tampa area as they learned it was 80% unchurched and ranked one of the top cities in the nation for human trafficking. However, the path of launching a life-giving church felt unclear and if ARC would be as generous as they had heard.

“All ARC wants to do is put the tools in your hands to build the church God has put in your hearts.” This response from ARC’s Executive Director, Dino Rizzo, helped reassure them they belonged among ARC’s community of like-minded churches.
After a year of mentoring and learning the behind-the-scenes from another local ARC church, the Greens felt more equipped to launch and went from apprehension to sold-out commitment.

Since 2000, ARC has helped to plant more than 1,000 worldwide. If you have a dream in your heart to start a life-giving church and reach your city with the message of Jesus, ARC is here to come alongside you in the journey. Attending ARC Launch, a church planter training event, is the first step in planting a church with ARC. You will hear from ARC pastors, coaches, and staff as they share the nuts and bolts of church planting.
