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.
Over the past 23 years, we have helped 1,097 couples start life-giving churches worldwide! Each of those churches begins with a dream. ARC is here to come alongside that dream and provide church planters with the training, coaching, and funding they need to launch strong. We are passionate about providing the resources and the relationships for each church planter and each church to thrive.
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!
Maybe you feel called to plant a church or are part of an existing church; we need you. These church planters need your prayers, your leadership, and your investment. Don’t do ministry alone – we believe that, and because of you, we will continue to equip church planters and pastors for years to come.

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!
