Evangelism and Movements: July CPLF Gathering

Church Planting Leadership Fellowship is open to denominational and network leaders of church planting.

For the past few years we have hosted a gathering of denomination and network church planting leaders from across North America to consider process and practices of church planting. We call this group the Church Planting Leadership Fellowship, and it’s a partnership between Wheaton College’s Billy Graham Center for Evangelism, NewChurches.com, and LifeWay Research.

This is a growing peer group, specifically focused on those who are leading church planting efforts in their denomination and/or network. It regularly features leaders who represent around 75% of all North American evangelical church planting in a given year.

In the past we have featured speakers like Tim Keller, Rick Warren, Linda Stanley, Neil Cole, Dhati Lewis, Leonce Crump, Derwin Gray, and many, many others. What makes this gathering so special, though, is not just the learning we get (though it’s pretty spectacular), but the opportunity for peers to sit down and learn from each other.

Our next gathering will be focused on Evangelism and Movements. In fact, this is one of the reasons Daniel Im and I recently wrote 1,000 Churches: How Past Movements Did It—And How Your Church Can, Too.

During this gathering – on July 25 & 26 in Wheaton, Illinois – we will discuss what it takes for your denomination or network to increase its evangelism efforts and create a movemental culture for planting and multiplication.

Here’s the lineup for this year:
