Multiplying Churches

Multiplying Churches

The Multiplying Churches service area is integral to the mission of our churches, and of our conference. We desire to see Christ-centred churches multiplied throughout Alberta, and we are committed to supporting initiatives within our province that fulfill this mission.

Every MB church should consider being involved in multiplying churches at some level.

Camp leaders’ and volunteers’ primary focus is on the spiritual well-being of the campers who attend each summer, and on sharing God’s love in practical ways with them. Once camp season is over, any new believers who come to know the Lord at camp need to have a bridge or a connection with the local church in order to continue to grow in their newfound faith. Camp ministry and these connections are one of the areas that can fuel church growth and multiplication.[/mk_icon_box][mk_icon_box icon=”mk-moon-tools” title=”Missional Leadership Development” text_size=”20″ style=”boxed” icon_color=”#ffffff” icon_circle_color=”#cc6e03″]ABMB churches are encouraged to provide missional opportunities to their members, and to bolster these opportunities with training and development. Additional training and development can occur within the churches, or within the context of some of our partner ministries.[/mk_icon_box][mk_icon_box icon=”mk-li-leaf” title=”Church Planting” text_size=”20″ style=”boxed” icon_color=”#ffffff” icon_circle_color=”#cc6e03″]ABMB partners with C2C to help identify and support church planters in our province. We also work with our member churches to see church re-planting occur where possible, in order to continue to proclaim Christ in areas where church doors are threatening to close. This coming season’s initiatives include an intentional integration plan for church plants.[/mk_icon_box][mk_icon_box icon=”mk-moon-users-2″ title=”Planter Apprenticeships” text_size=”20″ style=”boxed” icon_color=”#ffffff” icon_circle_color=”#cc6e03″]We are exploring the idea of facilitating apprenticeships for potential church planters via successful planters currently working in an active plant.[/mk_icon_box][mk_icon_box icon=”mk-moon-compass” title=”Church Plant Integration” text_size=”20″ style=”boxed” icon_color=”#ffffff” icon_circle_color=”#cc6e03″]One of ABMB’s initiatives for the coming year is to identify strategic church plant communities/opportunities  and to explore possibilities in concert with partner denominations in order to maximize ministry reach.[/mk_icon_box]
