Multiplying Healthy Local Churches To Transform Our Cities

We believe that thriving local churches are what every community needs, and the most effective way of reaching our communities with Jesus is through the multiplication of healthy churches.

Multiplication means there’s room for everyone, including you!

Our Mission
