At the heart of developing a church planting movement is understanding that we serve a triune missionary God, who has sent us into the world to bless people and seek transformation. We exist to help you start disciple-making churches that are a sign, foretaste and instrument of God’s kingdom. If you want to find partners in the gospel, experience renewal, discover the latest resources in church planting with a movement mentality, learn from experienced planters and those gifted differently than you, and contribute to a larger movement, then contact us, and consider joining the V3 movement.
The good news of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ has the power to change our lives, our communities and our world. We want to live lives that others would want to live, characterized by the fruit of the Spirit. We encourage churches to engage in missional leadership that values apostles, prophets, evangelist, pastors and teachers in a polycentric way. We value helping the whole family live on mission in a healthy way, and working with men and women planters and people from every ethnic background and class. We are a sent people, joining God in the renewal of all things.
