The Church Planting Team will host a seminar for planters and pastors to help them create and cultivate; church, leadership, and church financial sustainability. This workshop is designed to help planters/pastors avoid the landmines and overcome the obstacles to sustainability. For those attending and completing the seminar, there will be a limited amount of grants available to help them pursue sustainability.



Michael Crawford leads the Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware’s church multiplication “squad,” that seeks to discover, develop and deploy church planters through church planter assessment and ongoing church plant support.

He works continually to enhance and streamline church planting procedures, and he is a strong advocate and voice for the planters and for the established churches that support them.
