What is a ‘Sending Church’?

By Clint Clifton

Our new (and free!) Sending Church Masterclass provides training and development for kingdom-minded leaders in the Great Commission work of taking the gospel to the nations.

You’re called to lead a “Sending Church,” but what does that mean? Our team at New Churches just released the Sending Church Masterclass, a brand-new course to help you figure it out!

In 32 video lessons from experienced teachers, the Sending Church Masterclass examines the characteristics and calling of a multiplying church to help you:

  • Establish a multiplication culture and mindset in your church
  • Assess the health of your congregation
  • Grow, develop and multiply leaders from within
  • Plan for financial and logistical needs
  • Provide lasting care to those on the field

The Sending Church Masterclass examines the wisdom of seasoned church planters and pastors as they equip you to lead from a Great Commission frame of mind.

For example:

— J.D. Greear articulates how the seeds we plant for the gospel go forward to multiply new churches and make new disciples.
— D.A. Horton explains how you can endure the opposition and challenges of church planting and flourish in the unique work God is doing in your congregation.
— Michael Crawford discusses how to establish a process for identifying the gifts Christ has given to the local church.
— Lori Frances shares how the team you establish will impact the culture of your church and highlights the team-building factors that lay the foundation for the church you will continue to become.
— Sergio Guardia reveals simple ways that Sending Churches can encourage, assist and bless those you have sent out from your own congregations.

The Sending Church Masterclass provides training and development for kingdom-minded leaders and churches in this Great Commission work. Understand your church’s role and get practical help reaching the nations with the gospel, one church at a time.
