"Rise and Plant" Central District

Join us as we “Rise and Plant” churches in neighborhoods that have never been reached with the Good News.

Rise and Plant is the heart of Church Planting in the Central District. We are not just commissioned by Jesus, but compelled by love for the lost.

We are prepared to help you take the next step in planting a healthy and vibrant church by providing training, mentorship and resources. Do you feel called to Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, Utah, Montana or Idaho? Do you feel God calling you to plant a church in English or Spanish across these 6 states? Get in touch:
