Network church planting

quick facts

  • There are 100,000 people in the Mankato metropolitan area. Most of them have no idea how much God loves them.

  • In fact, 8 out of 10 people in the Mankato area do not attend church regularly.

    Additionally, even if every seat in every church were filled, there wouldn’t be enough space for every person to hear about the love of Jesus.

Leading missiologists have shown that Church planting is the most effective evangelistic tool we have for helping people hear and respond to the good news about God’s love. 

Your partnership will help bring the good news about God’s love to a new group of people.


While we may be taking the lead on this new church plant, we cannot do it on our own. A successful church plant takes numerous people who are willing to make sacrifices for the sake of the good news of God’s love for the world. There are three key ways that you can partner with us.


Church plants start with a LOT of prayer. We’ve been praying for months. For our neighbors, for our own spiritual lives, for the right people to join us and the right location to begin worship services.

Join the launch team (volunteer)

Church plants need people to help run the events and programs that serve the people we are reaching. For some, that means, the church plant will become your new church home. For others, that means helping for a few events. If you’re interested in joining the launch team, contact us. Contact us:
