DISCERN A CALL TO CHURCH PLANTING
We love our city and believe God has called Trinity to continue to plant new churches throughout Atlanta. The intent of the Trinity Church Planting Residency is threefold: to help the Resident discern a potential call to church planting through Trinity, to support & empower the Resident to build toward a church plant, and to provide the Resident intentional exposure & support for ministry leadership at Trinity.
I greatly appreciated my time in the program. It provided an on-the-ground opportunity to greenhouse ideas and visions for a church plant alongside a group of very supportive and talented people. I can’t imagine a better environment to prepare to launch a new church work!
