Church Planting

The Pacific Conference is looking to plant churches across the Pacific Northwest. We see a growing need in our urban centers of Boise, SW Portland, and the Puget Sound, however the need is great and the workers are few! Church Planters/Plant Teams are offered a financial support package based upon their project and need.

Reporting and Accountability
The Church Planter reports directly to the Director of Church Planting. Quarterly reporting and accountability with the Board of Church Planting will also be required.


Financial Support is available for the church plant and planter. The amount available and duration of distribution is dependent upon the specific work, context, and need.

The Church Planter needs to have the gifting and abilities to start a new church work.
