The New Churches Relaunch

By Trevin Wax

Today, I am excited to announce the relaunch of, now powered by Send Network!  

Church planting is a natural overflow of good discipleship, but many church leaders wonder how to get started:   

  • What are the first steps to becoming a church planter?  
  • How do you help a church that has never been involved in church planting develop a mindset for multiplication?  
  • Where can you turn for resources to help you start this journey? 

It’s no secret that church planting is tough. Church planters and the pastors of the churches that send them need trustworthy guidance.  

Our goal at is to come alongside you—providing free resources as we convene church planting experts across the evangelical landscape who offer new insights and best practices on how to plant and multiply the church.  

New Churches is powered by Send Network, which has helped young and old churches alike plant thousands of new churches across North America. Thanks to the generosity of Send Network and Lifeway, past courses on are now available for free. New Churches also is launching the first section in a new course—Church Planting Masterclass, and more than a dozen future courses are in development.  

Sign up to stay informed about future giveaways, including ebooks and new courses. We will provide new articles and research on the blog on a regular basis, as well as new insights through the relaunch of the New Churches podcast. We also are happy to connect you to someone in our network if you want to discuss next steps in planting a church or helping your church send out others.
