Northwestern Ohio District Church Of The Nazarene

Church Planting and Multiplication

Church planting

 Do you realize that your church is a church plant? It is easy to forget but every church that exists was planted at some point.

What if someone did not have the vision and passion to reach lost people in your community? Your church would not exist and the many lives changed over the years, maybe even decades, may not have happened.

In Northwest Ohio District we see planting new churches as normal as seeing people saved and baptized. And, if we plant more churches that is exactly what we will see!

Start praying now for a heart that breaks over lost and hurting people.
Start praying now for a vision of church multiplication that only God can make happen! Our God is a sending God and he is calling each of us in Northwest Ohio to send our people to expand His kingdom.

Ready to be a sending church, a church planter, or launch a new campus? Call or email Mark Coulter, Multiplication and Church Planting Coordinator of NWO, or District Superintendent Andy Monnin and we’ll start the discussion.
