REACH OUT Network Group – Starting New Worship Service

If God is pointing you to start a new worship service this might be what you are looking for.

This launch process has been created to help the pastor and their team think through all the variables of launching a new worship service. If your vision is to reach the de-churched or unchurched for Christ then this is what you have been waiting for!

This training is not a cookie-cutter approach to launching a new worship service. During our time together we will challenge your team with questions throughout our training to help you think contextually about your particular situation. We treat each church individually through individualized coaching and questions found throughout our training. We will walk with you as you develop a detailed launch plan that is being simultaneously put into action. The cost is just $375 for the whole team; which includes the training, coaching and we provide lunch!

Typically (but not always!) this 2015-2016 training would prepare a church to launch a new worshiping community in October of 2016.

Please come and join us on this incredible journey to reach new people for Christ!
