In our increasingly post-Christian era, 83 percent of Americans do not attend church on any given weekend. Nearly one third of young people under the age of 30 are religiously unaffiliated. Every year, more than 3,000 churches shut their doors, never to open again. Myriad challenges—from rapid demographic change to tepid evangelism— render churches ineffective in communities across the country.
Church planting endures as one of the most effective strategies to reach young adults, engage a growing multiethnic population, and develop vibrant local churches that make disciples.
The Cornerstone Conference Evangelism Ministries is committed to Church Planting and the vital role of providing training and equipping ministries in the conference.
The IPHC is partnering with Dynamic Church Planters International to provide training and certification for Pastors, Planters and Missionaries that is biblical, practical and reproducible.
We encourage you to consider how you can advance the kingdom of God as a local church planter or church-planting partner.
