Church Planting

Why We
Plant Churches

Without church planting, Rivers Crossing wouldn’t be here.

Ever since we were just getting started, we’ve been passionate about evangelism.

As carriers of the most important message in history, we are constantly trying new, creative strategies to share the good news of Jesus in an ever-changing culture. But at the end of the day, church planting is the most effective strategy that we have.

New churches provide space for people to gather, build connections and find support–especially people who may not otherwise give church a chance. Church plants are the best way to reach new people, impact the next generation, and bring fresh ideas to the Kingdom as a whole.


In 2014, we launched an initiative to help plant 10 churches in 10 years.

This initiative allows us to invest in church planters and to take the gospel beyond our reach—to the least, last, and lost people in our communities and the world.
