When ARC was formed over fifteen years ago, it was little more than a dream that a movement would be started. Since then, ARC has started more than 600 churches around the United States. Now, ARC finds itself in relationships around the globe, with 8 ARC Global Hubs that have replicated the ARC model.
We invite you to dream with us in seeing life-giving churches in every community in your nation. While building an ARC-type network might not happen overnight, here are “Next Steps” to get you started:
JOIN THE ARC GLOBAL FAMILY
You should get involved in ARC events and make new friends. We will do our best to keep you informed of any ARC family events or gatherings in your part of the world. Doing life and ministry together makes a world of difference.
Attend one of our annual conferences. We will waive the conference registration fee the first year.
Access resources from the ARC family on how to create healthy church culture, build momentum in church growth, and develop a church planting mindset.
BE EMPOWERED AS A LEADER
You should create environments for pastors to gather, be encouraged and dream together.
ARC will resource you with tools to encourage and empower other leaders in your city and region.
ARC will provide periodic conference calls and Google Hangouts with the ARC team to bring support and training.
CREATE AN OFFICIAL ARC HUB
You should build a team of five or more pastors that will focus on relationships and a mission to financially resource the dreams of church planters in your nation. At that time, you can be approved as an official ARC Hub.
Connect with ARC U.S. for church planting resources – training, assessing and coaching.
ARC GLOBAL HUB LOCATIONS
One of the best ways to be connected with ARC Global is to check out some of the many events we have planned just for you. As you’ll see below, there are a variety of ways to connect – Launch Trainings, online hangouts, local meet-ups, and a variety of conferences in different nations. There’s no reason for anyone to feel they have to do ministry alone! Here’s what’s coming up in ARC Global.
PETER HAAS | SUBSTANCE CHURCH
Pastor Peter has a desire for the world to know God and to also experience a life-giving church. As he shares his heart for ARC Global, we hope that his passion for life-giving ministry inspires you to continue pursuing the calling God has for you and your church.
We believe that every community around the world deserves a life-giving church, and we are believing God to provide the relationships needed to see this dream realized. We are glad you’ve decided to take some time to explore the ARC Global site. Check out the 8 Keys to Church Planting videos below.
