Program Description:

Church Planting and Multiplication

At Wesley Seminary, we are firm believers that new churches and fresh expressions of the gospel will always be an essential strategy to reaching those who don’t know Jesus Christ. We also believe that the Seminary’s role is to help mobilize and equip the local church; therefore, we are committed to encouraging and equipping church planters and multiplying pastors. We believe the specialization in Church Planting and Multiplication will provide leaders with the necessary knowledge, experience, skills, and confidence in order to initiate new churches, sites, and venues within many diverse cultures across the globe.

Whether you are doing the specialization as part of the Master of Divinity or Master of Arts in Ministry programs or as a certificate, it is designed to be done “on the run” while you are serving or volunteering in ministry. The Church Planting & Multiplication specialization consists of four courses designed to train multiplication minded churches, pastors, and current or future planters. Whether you plan to start a new church, a new campus, or even a new venue, this program will help you:

  • Develop practical skills needed to plant a new church, campus, or venue.
  • Become familiar with the preeminent resources in church multiplication.
  • Determine a framework for exegeting a specific culture and context.
  • Develop an extensive vision and strategic plan document for a future initiative.
  • Acquire an enhanced knowledge in the theology and praxis of church multiplication.
