A church planting network in the PCA is an association of churches within a presbytery or an association of presbyteries for the specific purpose of planting and growing churches within their particular city or region. Target communities and the church planters themselves are still approved by the respective presbyteries.
A recent count shows that there are at least 25 functioning church planting networks in the PCA. The way they are structured, their geographical scope, and their vision reflect a great deal of variety and creativity. By re-defining the term “network” in each geographic location in a way that recognizes the specific needs, existing resources and circumstances of that area, these associations of kingdom building partnerships are reaching the lost in effective and innovative ways.
We encourage you to browse these documents to learn more about these representative examples. Also, we invite you to contact MNA to learn more about church planting networks in the PCA.
