Church Renewal Training


MNA Church Planter Basic Training currently offers one full week of training in planting a biblically healthy church. This 30-35 hour unit includes workshops under the oversight of experienced trainers, as well as classroom teaching. Designed by Steve Childers for MNA, Basic Training covers “the Seven Seasons of Church Planting,” including the launch phase through about the fourth and fifth year of the new church.

MNA is in the process of expanding its program to include graduated levels of training:

  • Church Planting Orientation (offered immediately following assessment)
  • Basic Training (launch through six months)
  • Intermediate Training (six months through the second year)
  • Advanced Training (third year through the fifth year)
  • From Embers to a Flame
