The Church Planting Team’s Mission is to discover and develop planters, replanters, and partners who share our values and vision. We believe the church is the hero, and we aim to reflect this in our planting approach. Our Church Planting is rooted in our values.

The second of our values is Affirmation, the belief that local church affirmation of the church planter is biblical, and an effective means of stewardship accountability to our Cooperative Program, Maryland/Delaware State Missions Offering, and Annie Armstrong supporting churches.

“Churches plant churches” is not mere rhetoric to us. We can serve BCM/D churches by pre-assessing potential church planters, developing an assessment process for their church, and then assessing the potential church planting candidate. We affirm BCM/D churches who have a sound ecclesiological assessment process for church planters.
