New Church Ministry is a ministry of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada that trains, equips, assists, and multiplies emerging and affiliating congregations and leaders. Our heritage is rooted in the new church movement.



Leadership Academy is an interactive learning experience that brings together leaders, regardless of their denominational affiliation, to share leadership experience, wisdom, and training.


New Church Hacks provides practical (and sometimes peculiar) prompts for new church starts. Each episode is jam-packed with clever solutions to tricky problems and empowers courageous leaders with the tools, tips and how-tos to start, sustain and strengthen congregations.


An experienced coach will walk alongside you to help you remain on track and accountable for the goals set for yourself and church plant. Once you have a launch date, we can begin the coaching process.


Water the Plants is a church-wide initiative that is bringing together 1000 intercessors to pray for the leaders and congregations of the Disciples New Church Movement.


Spiritual Discernment

Spiritual discernment is an opportunity to explore God’s calling and direction in your life. 

The New Church Ministry team wants to walk with you on your journey to discern your calling. The activities we offer will help you “see” what God is doing and “hear” what God is saying to you.
