During the Influence Conference (prior to General Council 17 Anaheim), Dr. Chris Railey, Director of the Church Multiplication Network, shared an compelling vision for church planting in the Assemblies of God. The General Presbytery has approved a 10-year, $90 million dollar plan to plant 10,000 A/G churches (or sites) in the United States. There are currently 13,023 churches. While this plan offers multiple challenges, an obvious need is for the training of new credentialed ministers. Northwest University is prepared to be a significant player in training ministers for the 10K goal. Extension campuses, such as Salem and Sacramento, as well as our growing number of Church Partnership Programs are uniquely positioned to offer an affordable and academically excellent university-level education to future church planters.

Now, possibly more than ever before, there is the need for pastors’ share their story of how they were called into vocational ministry and to boldly ask others to consider whether the Lord desires to use them in His mission.
