NCC Healthy Church Plant Definition

 A healthy church plant in the Northern California Conference consists of a core leadership team engaged in the process of establishing a new mission-focused group that meets at least weekly to strategically minister to its community creating opportunities for God to grow His kingdom and become a self-sustaining, self-replicating, and contextualized congregation that glorifies God.


NCC believes that no planter should plant alone.


We have a support system for our pastors and lay members to equip them to plant churches.

“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”

Who Should Support the Work of Planting Churches?

“Upon all who believe, God has placed the burden of raising up churches, for the express purpose of educating men and women to use their entrusted capabilities for the benefit of the world, employing the means He has lent for His glory. He has made human beings His stewards. Gladly and generously they are to use the means in their possession for the advancement of righteousness and truth. They are to employ His entrusted talents in building up His work and enlarging His kingdom.”
