The Need
In order to fulfill the Great Commission, effective, reproducing churches need to be planted around the world. Both evangelism and discipleship are essential components in this equation.

In much of Eastern Europe where much less than 1% of the population would be considered an evangelical believer, our effectiveness at church planting will determine the course of the society and the next generation.

But as one European pastor expressed, “It takes strong, mature leaders to produce healthy, strong churches.” God is raising up a new generation of young leaders with vision, but they need those to come along side of them and disciple them as they plant churches.

Nex Gen Purpose
Church Planters Academy began in Canada as a way to practically coach and disciple church planters as they are planting churches. This model is now being implemented in other countries.

It is designed in such a way that practitioners, those who are church planters, teach and then follow through with prospective church planters.

Nex Gen Strategy
The three year model consists of meeting once a year for one week of training for three consecutive years.

Throughout the year the participants are then involved in a mentoring / discipleship relationship so that they can be coached during the church planting process. As of 2009 over 600 church planters have attended a Church Planters Academy.  Four CPA’s are planned for November 2009 which will bring the total to over 1000.
