A message from ARC Executive Director, Dino Rizzo.

...and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.

– Matthew 16:18 (NKJV)

ARC is 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. We need existing churches to remain steadfast and new churches to breathe life into their cities and become a beacon of hope to the hurting.

We are celebrating all that God has done, and will continue, to do this year! We have seen over 40 churches launch through ARC so far in 2022, with more planned for this fall. God is still moving, and the local Church is stronger than ever! 

In January, we celebrated our 1,000th church plant – a milestone over 20 years in the making. That weekend was not only a time to celebrate church 1,000, but to celebrate and acknowledge the 999 others that paved the way. Each of those dreams was fulfilled, and each community reached across the past 22 years lead up to this incredible moment.

None of this could have been accomplished without YOU! We are grateful for your continued prayers, support, resources, and encouragement. We are committed to planting and growing the local Church, together.

Be a part of the next 1,000!

Meet the Planters

It takes a God-given dream to make a church a reality. Planting or growing a church during a pandemic is no small task. But these churches adapted so quickly. They are innovative, creative, and determined to reach their cities with the message of Jesus. Continue to dream with us and the many couples who are preparing to launch a new local church!
