Your church has a mission: to make disciples, to cultivate life change, to evangelize new believers, to mend broken lives, to serve the community.
But how do you multiply that mission? Orchard Group helps make it simple: You get top church planters and locations. You get new and maintained channels of accountability and support. You become meaningfully engaged. And you can share with your congregation stories of transformed lives.
You’ll have the best locations and leaders for church planting. That’s because Orchard Group’s executive staff has decades of experience in planting churches in challenging communities.
We have the tools to determine the gifting and potential of church planting candidates, and we personally visit each location to assess its need and opportunity.
Where is God leading your church to make a difference? Cities of greatest influence? Neighborhoods of greatest need? Places of disparity or injustice? Communities where Jesus remains unknown?
As a partner church, you select the church planting project that fits your mission.
As a partner church, you want your investment to be used effectively. That’s why Orchard Group creates and facilitates management teams that provide board-level accountability. This serves the lead planter with solid support before the church plant has developed its own internal governance, and it gives you a meaningful connection to the project.
As a partner church, you can celebrate the successes and prayerfully engage with the struggles of the church you help plant. Weekly updates, quarterly reports, on-site visits, provide opportunity for your church to truly know the planter and the location. And you get to share and celebrate the stories of genuine life change with your congregation.
When you invest in a new church, you make a difference that grows exponentially.
That’s because by its 10th anniversary, the typical Orchard Group church has given more funding to external causes than it received from outside partners.
I believe in church planting because it's the most effective way of reaching the lost. I believe in Orchard Group because they know what they are doing, especially in the urban context. We've partnered with them for years and I've been part of some amazing projects in areas that were otherwise almost unreached with the gospel.Tim Harlow, Senior Pastor, Parkview Christian Church
