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.
It’s amazing to see all that God has done through ARC over the past 20+ years! As of December 2022, we have witnessed 1,057 churches launch in communities across the globe. God is still moving, and the local Church is stronger than ever!
We are excited to celebrate a new group of church planters launching life-giving churches in their communities this year! Planting a church is no small task. These couples and their teams have spent the past several months, and even years, praying, planning, and preparing for launch day and beyond. Each new church planted represents a Kingdom-sized dream fulfilled!
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.

Meet the Planters

It takes a God-given dream to make a church a reality. These planters are committed to reaching their cities with the message of Jesus. We are blown away by the innovation, creativity, and determination they have displayed as they prepare to launch. Continue to dream with us and the many couples who are gearing up for launch day, and join us in praying for them as they impact their communities for Christ!
