It can be difficult for emerging and affiliating leaders and congregations to access the dearth of resources provided by the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada and other faith-based organizations that will assist them in guiding their churches. As the ministry that equips and assists these Disciples, New Church Ministry not only offers a variety of services such as training, webinars, and coaching, but it also makes general ministries and other religious organizations more accessible.

Spiritual Discernment

“Ask, it will be given you; search, and you will find, knock, and the door will be opened for you.”

Matthew 7:7

Congratulations, you have taken the first step by expressing an interest in starting a new church. Now it is time to seek God on your next steps in ministry.

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