Welcome to Church Planting BC
Transforming our Cities: One Life at a Time
However you found your way to our website, we’re glad to share with you the vision God is bringing together for the province of BC and increasingly for our nation!
Church Planting BC exists to be a catalyst for church planting throughout this province. In the recent years, God has been calling a huge number of planters specifically to the city of Vancouver, so we find ourselves focusing much time and energy these days on understanding and formulating “urban strategies.” Our movement is built on a solid trust and dependence upon the Spirit of God. We pray for workers, for finances, and for the appropriate locations and strategies, and God is answering those prayers!
There are three values that drive our agenda at CPBC:
We desire to be a movement that is: Gospel-Centred, Spirit-Led & Mission-Focused.
Everything we do, from assessing, coaching, training and fund-raising is anchored to these values!
By following the links and tabs on this site and you will meet a couple dozen planters, who, together with their families are serving here in BC.
Who are we?
CPBC is a growing network of church planters throughout western Canada. We have grown from a denominationally focused church planting department, to a network-focused movement. We are still planting Mennonite Brethren Churches (and are proud to do so!) but we recognize that no single denomination alone will be able to reach the great cities of our day! If we are going to see real kingdom transformation happen in our day, it will be because EVERY gospel-centred church & movement in our province is flourishing.
To that end, we are intentionally seeking partnerships with like-minded followers of Christ who agree on the centrality of God’s Word, on a holistic gospel that is both faithfully proclaimed as well as missionally incarnated, and who are unapologetically Christ-centred in their ministry. If these concepts describe you – then we’d love to get to know you!
We fully endorse the great work that is done in “global missions” by so many great sending organizations – but we also see the incredible spiritual needs right here in western Canada. We like to think of ourselves as the “home missions” arm of the local church!
Our strategy involves a total dependence upon Jesus Christ to do what He said He would do! He told us to pray the Lord of the harvest for workers: we do! - and He is answering! We invite your prayer, your partnership, your involvement! Please click the “prayer team” button to your right and join our prayer team.
